Shea Whigham Tobit Writer

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 Jurassic Park, the predators escape during a storm. The stakes are raised to survival itself.

Let’s look at what happens in five of our movie examples:

Each analysis moves the hero from the beginning of commitment (the story is now in gear) to a point where there’s no way out. I call this the “increasing jeopardy” of the hero. The stakes of the story are raised.

Obviously these approaches differ in their particulars, just as my approach below will different from both of them. But here, as always, it is more important to understand what these approaches share than how they differ.
