PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

In The Graduate, as Benjamin and Elaine bus into the sunset, Benjamin learns that he can find happiness out of the middle-class conformity in which he was raised. Or can he? With everyone on the bus staring at the couple, the ending may be double-edged, the comedy blacker than we realize at first.

In Jurassic Park, the hero learns a professional and a personal lesson: that scientific research has its dangerous side and that he likes children more than he thought he did. Children are probably in his future with his girlfriend.

The best stories have a point. The hero learns something and comes out of his/her experience better than s/he went into it. The hero grows in some way.

If you don’t understand a paradigm, it’s not the end of the world. All these paradigms have their proponents but in fact the paradigms are more alike than different. It’s senseless to get caught up in quibbling about how many acts a screenplay really has. Whatever number you put on it, it’s still beginning-middle-end storytelling.

In essence, each of these is just a variation of the 3-act paradigm.

the audience’s fulfillment paradigm

the hero’s journey paradigm
