Watching films can be extremely therapeutic. Cinemas are like a tale that spurs our imagination in visual and auditory forms. It is used as a form of escapism for many, it helps us dive into a world far from our own reality and indulge in it excessively. Films are a great tool used to teach us unforgettable lessons. Movies can actually change the way we think and feel. Sometimes we view certain films that mirror our current situation; therefore, it allows us to resonate with the main characters. Watching films also allows us to feel free emotionally, those who might have trouble expressing themselves on a regular basis may find themselves laughing excessively and crying unapologetically. This could be really cathartic for many people who do not often express themselves openly. Watching films might also allow the person understand inter-personal relations better, and they might also feel more comfortable in expressing themselves.
