Yet, while ceaselessly invoked, this notorious device has received barely any detailed attention from the field of film studies. This book is thus the first in-depth examination of one of the most overused and under-analysed concepts in discussions of popular cinema. What exactly is the happy ending?

Concentrating especially on conclusions featuring an ultimate romantic union the final couple this wide-ranging investigation probes traditional associations between the happy ending and homogeneity, closure, unrealism, and ideological conservatism, testing widespread assumptions against the evidence offered by a range of classical and contemporary films.
