Use input() to ask the user if they want to start the movie.

If they answer anything other than "n" or "N", print "Enjoy the show!". Otherwise, call sys.exit(). You'll need to import the sys library.

i dont understand why mine isnt working

import sys
while True:
    answer= input('movie?: y/n').lower()
    if answer!='n':
        print('enjoy the show')

You want to test for both N and n so you should do answer.lower(), also you should remove the break statement since that is where the function would stop executing anyway.
