If an artist is just going to put drama on the big screen--this character is angry, that one is happy, they clash and the angry one makes the happy one suffer--then that's not deep enough for me to enjoy it. You what that is called? A soap opera. A bad one.
No it's called "your straw man." It's not even a reasonable description of drama.
It's a conflict--the very definition of drama. It's a basic one, but one I see often in movies.
