* MoodWhiplash: Neil experiences this when he is thrilled to pieces about getting the lead role in Macbeth, only to open the door to his dorm room and become white with fear to see his father sitting there, already waiting to scold his son ruthlessly. Even though Neil did falsify a letter of permission from his father earlier in the film, which wasn't the smartest move, the fact remains that Mr. Perry's behavior throughout the film is still displayed as [[ItsAllAboutMe thinking of his own interests rather than Neil's, given how overly strict and authoritarian he is]], which only made Neil want to pursue acting more.

* AssimilationAcademy: ''And how.'' Weldon seems to be only a notch away from a military school. Its methods are centered on demanding total conformity to a program that puts every student on a pre-set path toward the Ivy League and the Establishment.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Neil and Todd's dynamic definitely comes across as closer than simply roommates. [[spoiler: Todd reacts to Neils's death like a distraught lover, and all of the other poets are more worried about looking after him than their own grief, even though they've been friends with Neil for years, and Todd has only known him for a few months.]] Not to mention unlike the rest of boys, neither of them show much interest in the girls Charlie brings into the society.
