Film & Literature sims love two main things. Reading books and watching movies. This article discusses all things relating to these sims.


The first thing you may want to do during toddlerhood is to get their parents to read books to them. As children almost every option is available to them. Reading books has been upgraded to let you choose the genre. Eventually, you can discuss the novels with other sims and share those interests.

The other element of Film & Literature is watching movies on T.V. To do this simply select the new Watch Movie interaction. There are ten movies that you can watch and five genres to choose from.

There is no specific career for Film & Literature sims so go with what your sims want as young adults. As well, the Write Novel interaction has been upgraded to let you choose the cover, plot and title of the book. Sell as many masterpieces that you want.

As adults there are no careers that contain objects for Film & Literature sims although the education career has a special bookcase. Other careers to consider are Entertainment, Journalism and Show Business.
