    There are no elements of writing that can compare to the brutal twists of irony. It is like a torture device used on the characters of a story for our entertainment. In reality, we have no control over the ironic torments life hands to us, and that is why it is so prevalent in fiction. Not only can we control something so elusive, but we can use it strategically to create tales that shock and captivate an audience.

And, though the film is fictional, its release date’s synchronization with The Three Mile Island nuclear plant accident in Pennsylvania works to bridge the film’s content into real life relevancy. Not only is the film exciting, as it keeps one on the edge of his or her seat, but the information that it releases about the science…
