    Default ideas and issues

    'a movie that deals in ideas and issues'
    I wonder what these 'ideas' and 'issues' mean.
    May I have some examples of 'ideas' and 'issues'?
    Thank you.

    Default Re: ideas and issues

    Issues would be social, political problems or other important subjects and the ideas would, presumably, be ones for improving things.

    Oh, great! Thank you very much, todol,
    for the valuable information.
    Is 'ideas and issues' a common phrase?

    Yes, it is used to distinguish something (like a movie) that will make you think rather than just amuse you.
