"message" here is a string literal
should be fp.close()

message here is a variable. The variable named message has not previously
had a value assigned to it.
$s should be %s
If you want the subject to be the filename, then what you need to do is:
1) assign the filename to some variable
2) open the file using the variable that contains the filename
3) use the variable that contains the filename to generate the subject
eg (assuming suitable imports etc) and the message is in a text file
msgfile = "message.txt"
fp = open( msgfile, "r" )
msg = MIMEText(fp.read())
msg['Subject'] = 'The contents of %s' % msgfile
