Although the best reasons for “going to the movies” are to be entertained and eat popcorn, understanding a film is actually quite complex. Movies are not only a reflection of life, they also have the capability of shaping our norms, values, attitudes, and perception of life.

Film and literature are two media forms that are so closely related, that we often forget there is a distinction between them. We often just view the movie as an extension of the book because most movies are based on novels or short stories. Because we are accustomed to this sequence of production, first the novel, then the motion picture, we often find ourselves making value judgments about a movie, based upon our feelings on the novel. It is this overlapping of the creative processes that prevents us from seeing movies as distinct and separate art forms from the novels they are based on.

Relatability is a relatively newfound term used to describe something such as a novel or a movie that resonates with viewers in a particular manner. Recently older pieces of literature such as Shakespeare have been deemed “unrelatable” because of their inability to connect with audiences. This notion stems more from the fact that Shakespeare was written in a different time period than the actual relatability of the plays. The word relatable garners many different interpretations, but they usually all involve certain key characteristics. While relatability is at its roots subjective, a piece of art is generally relatable when it evokes qualities and life experiences that are common to the audience. Relatable literature and entertainment also tends to connect with the viewers emotions and test the morality of its characters. This is why films such as Star Wars have amassed so much success for so many years. Although texts by authors such as Shakespeare and Chaucer are often seen as unrelatable due to the time period in which they were written, in fact they provide a sense of relatability because of the qualities of the characters and the moral and emotional implications that are so common to everyday life.
