War Room, directed by Alex Kendrick, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Island. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bravely Second: End Layer or Jelly Jump.
