Definition of Misdirection and its Subcategories

Misdirection will be the umbrella term used in our project, containing the terms ‘misinformation’ and ‘altered perspective’ as subcategories. Misinformation will be defined as characters interpreting the information they are given correctly, though the information itself is false. Altered perspective is the inverse- characters are given the correct information, but interpret it incorrectly. Misdirection in general is used constantly throughout both The Quiet Family and Happiness of the Katakuris, and makes the films resemble Shakespearian comedies.
