Often times, art (painting, photography, music, theatre, film, dance, literature) imitates life. It can also serve as an allegory — used to present a simple idea.

Scott Myers notes, “In the process of crafting and writing a story, it’s critical to look for and manage the multiple themes that emerge. My principle: Theme = Meaning. And I don’t mean some theoretical premise, but rather a story’s emotional meaning, tied to a character’s psychological journey.”
Therefore, what better premise is there to explore than that of an entrepreneur and the resultant journey that unfolds. To that end, here are five movies that unexpectedly reveal five lessons that you won’t learn in the classroom.[thethe-image-slider name="Slider6"]
What other movies can teach us a lesson or two about business? Let me know in the comments below.
