two versions

he read the book
she saw the movie.
they discussed their differences:

he argued the book was better
as it didn’t over-simplify,
and resisted reducing its characters' problems to clichés.

she argued the film was better
as its character’s problems were clear
and not masked by ambiguities.

and so they continued to argue
about a film he’d never seen
and a book she’d never read.
