In current literary studies, a theme is the main topic of the subject or film in this case, you could even say the concept addressed in a story, not to be confused with the messages and the moral, because they meaning of them both are different but them again could come across in the same way to the audience. The word ‘theme’ came from, and was used as a reference "message" or "moral,“ people now days rarely employ it in this fashion, mainly due to the mistake it causes regarding the common denotation of theme: "the subject of discourse, discussion, conversation, meditation, or composition; a topic.“ One important problem that accrued with the previous usage of this word that readers would frequently conflate "subject" and "theme" and would use them in a similar context, the new terminology that is used now helps in a big way mainly to prevent people getting mixed up with both scholarship and the classroom. Overall I believe that themes play a big part of a film without a theme in a film, the film wouldn’t really be making senesce to the audience, there are many themes that producers are able to choses from but when looking at who the producer is and what type of audience that they are trying to portray there film to, it is able to narrow there theme choice down. I do feel that the target audience makes a big difference to the theme choice for an example when looking at “attack the block” there audience is film 4 audience but then they are able to portray there theme through costumes and designers that the actors wear. Also another thing that I noticed in attack the block was there language that was used, you are able to see through there dialogue that is used that they are trying to represent British teenagers as quite rude and intimidating student's.
