CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION 1.1 Rationale Language is an indispensable tool in communication It‘s considered to have miraculous power in conveying the ideas, purposes and messages With the globalization, Film industry is really becoming an integral part in the modern life It brings the audiences not only happiness, entertainment but also experiences in life No usual day goes by without seeing the films on TV, at the cinema, on the Internet Films really become a preciously spiritual form to satisfy all senses, and it also makes an emotional connection in conveying the life messages, thrilling experiences, excitement and awareness through its main emphasis aspects Sometimes, the films can bring back optimistic thoughts for unhappy person, enrich people‘s knowledge, and enhance people‘s analytical thinking Films make our life more vivid and exciting Movie is so important that it has become the first arts of the human world Moreover, it‘s very clear that film titles are always the first impressive things come into the viewer‘s mind instead of the characters, director or the content of the film A good film title certainly helps not only grab the viewers‘ interest but also bring

What‘s the core conflict? What‘s the overall emotion screenwriter wants to convey in the script‘s title?
