Characters in films can portray impression of people and societies, which one experience in one way or another. These impressions may be positive or negative, depending on the filmmakers’ intentions. In The Imitation Game (2014) directed by Morten Tyldum, the protagonist Alan Turing is a little known but significant historical figure, who used his mathematical geniosity to end WWII and save millions of lives.

After Charlie had an operation to gain his intelligence, the most important lesson Charlie learns is that ignorance is bliss. Charlie learns the lesson of ignorance is bliss through his friendships, situations, and his conclusions he has drawn in his writings.
Human Intelligence The reason that certain events have occurred is for the human strive to gain intelligence. In the story, Flowers of Algernon, the main character is a mentally retarded adult, Charlie Gordon. In the story, he wants to become smart; and there is a surgery that can triple his IQ, but the doctors are not sure of the consequences that will occur from the surgery. The reason for this is because so far it they have only tested animals.
A common expression states that ignorance is bliss. But a quote from Philip Wylie follows it with this; “Ignorance isn't bliss, It's oblivion.” The narrative by Daniel Keyes titled “Flowers for Algernon” shows the use of this quote. Charlie, the main character and narrator of the story, has the IQ of 68 which makes him the subject to an artificial intelligence operation. When Charlie’s mind improves and he starts to become smarter than everyone else, is it an advantage or a difficulty?

However, he is still hard working and wished to get the surgery done so he could become smarter.

He has to take tests and do things an average person would be able to do easily.
