In this article we will see how we can find movies that have similar keyword. Keyword is a word (or group of connected words) attached to a title (movie / TV series / TV episode) to describe any notable object, concept, style or action that takes place during a title. The main purpose of keywords is to allow visitors to easily search and discover titles.
In order to get movies that have similar keywords we use get_keyword method.
