Cinema is not just a means of entertainment. It is a way of representing thoughts and emotions on the screen in an engaging way. The inspiration that filmmakers get to write new and interesting stories comes from their own life, experiences, and surroundings. This is the reason that cinema is considered as the mirror of society.
There are many issues that filmmakers choose to make movies on, and apart from entertaining, such movies also educate the audience in one way or another. As adults, we can choose whether to get affected or unaffected by a particular movie. It can leave a positive or negative impact on us or may have no impact at all.
However, we can’t say the same about children. While growing up, everything they see, listen to, or encounter is like a teacher. You say a word 10 times in front of them, and the 11th time, they will be saying it with you. It doesn’t matter if they know the word’s meaning or not. This is why you can’t show your kids every other movie. Visual means are the easiest ways of teaching your kid something, especially during the early years. That is why movies can’t be considered just another means of entertainment.
