Its all about the Subtext and Context
It’s impossible to interpret content or subtext unless we understand the context in which it is presented. This requires a commonsense approach. First, it is important to understand the relationship between the content and context. How is the content used in the storyline? Does it fit? Does it make sense within the context of how the story is being told? Does the content provide an ultimately redeeming social message? Do the characters change or grow because of the content? Is there redemption? Does truth ultimately prevail?
