This is effective because it enables the audience to gain an understanding of what the characters are saying, so by going back to the related scene, audience know who the characters are referring to. <br />Q5) What questions are you left with?<br />A5) The first sets of questions we are left with after watching the first part of Misery are; What is the antagonist after?
