There is much truth behind the magic of movies - whether it’s a period piece exemplifying the days of yore, a mystical quest with wizards and magic and unbelievable feats, or a comedy that has you keeling over with tears running down your face. 

What these all have in common is that they provide a window into a different world, evoking a wide range of feelings by having audiences bond with characters, root for their successes and empathize with their downfalls. 

It’s a collective experience shared by viewers of all ages, providing a bonding opportunity unspecific to genre or generation. In their essence, movies are meant to bring us together.
