Best experienced on Desktop, this dataviz is.
A good question, that is.
You are looking at a data visualisation of the sentiment of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Every dot is a line by one of the main characters in the movie.
The position on the y-axis resembles the sentiment score: from negative to positive.
The higher a dot is plotted, the more positive is the line behind it.
The size of a dot is the magnitude of the emotion.
You could say that a big dot is more powerfully expressesed than a small one.
The x-axis is the timeline of the plot.
This allows you to see where the lines appear in the movie.
