What are your qualities?

When you are searching for a book to read or a movie to watch, what qualities appeal to you? For example, if I want to read a book, I want it to be lively, compassionate and insightful. I want to walk away from that book knowing I have gained more knowledge, an insight into something I did not know beforehand, or maybe something touching that makes me spring to action or simply to reflect on my own life. I know I am imperfect so perfection is not what I seek. But the qualities that I seek are a mirror of what I want more in my life.
