somehow-you-will  asked:

Hey, I loved the breakdown you did of the relationship between Moses and Rameses, so I was wondering what your thoughts were on Moses' relationship with Miriam and Aaron (and if you might be able to do a similar analysis)?

Thank you so much! I loved talking about Moses and Rameses II (and could frankly keep talking about them, oh my goodness), and I’d be really happy to talk about the relationship dynamics between Moses, Miriam, and Aaron. This sibling relationship is complex, emotional, and full of meaning and beauty.

Each sibling has a different role. Aaron is the cynic. Miriam is the inspirer. Moses is the doer. Not only that, but there’s a deep story in how they interact: they are able to build each other up, but only once they all place their faith and trust in God. At first, the family is split up; Aaron and Moses both try to silence Miriam for her faith and hope. Moses regards Miriam and Aaron as slaves. Aaron thinks that Moses and Miriam have crazy ideas. However, over time, this changes. Moses transitions from treating Seti I, Tuya, and Rameses II as his family… to treating Aaron and Miriam as his siblings. Aaron begins accepting Moses and acknowledging the power of God’s deliverance, while Miriam’s hopes become reality. By the end of the movie, the three siblings are radiant around one another, drawn together by the powerful experience of the Exodus.

Moses Leaves His Family

At the start of The Prince of Egypt, Moses’ mother Jochebed takes her three children and runs to the Nile River. She is fleeing Egyptian soldiers, who are slaughtering every Hebrew infant boy. Once she and her children are safely away, she places her baby Moses in a basket, places a lid over the boy, and sends him off to float on the Nile.

Now it’s important to note here that both Miriam and Aaron witness their mother sending the baby off in the basket. However, only Miriam follows the basket; Aaron does not trail after his baby brother, and consequently never sees Tuya pick the boy up. This is important. Miriam sees God answer prayers. Miriam sees Tuya adopt Moses, and consequently the little girl is filled with hope and optimism. Her baby brother is going to survive! Aaron, however, only sees Moses leaving, and he grows up without seeing God fulfill those promises. His most distinct memories of this event will be the Hebrew babies being killed.

Many other life experiences will shape the way Miriam and Aaron think and behave. This is just one event. However, it still seems to predict how Miriam and Aaron act as adults. The next time we see Miriam, she is a woman of faith, while Aaron wallows in skepticism and fear.

Moses Meets Miriam and Aaron

Moses grows up without knowing he was a Hebrew, never realizing that his blood siblings are actually two Hebrew slaves. For this reason, when he stumbles into Miriam and Aaron in the street, he does not recognize them. Miriam and Aaron would have remembered what happened to their baby brother, but since Moses was an infant, of course he doesn’t remember in turn.

Looking at this screencap, it’s painful to think that these are actually three siblings interacting.

Miriam, ever the hopeful, faithful optimist, presumes that Moses has arrived at their doorstep for a family reunion. The last time she saw Moses, she prayed that he would grow up to deliver her people (it’s also the first thing she says in the movie, and man it portrays her and sets her up so well). Now she believes her prayer has been answered. Moses has grown up, he’s meeting with the Hebrew slaves, he’s returning to his family… he has to be delivering them, right? 

The problem is… that’s not why Moses is here at all. In fact, even as Miriam is excitedly greeting Moses, he’s trying to look above her. He’s looking past her, trying to follow Zipporah, and doesn’t quite welcome Miriam’s interruption.

The result is that Miriam looks crazy.

Here is this tiny little slave girl trying to talk to the impressive, gold-wearing, straight-backed Prince of Egypt about deliverance and family. She’s claiming that this royal prince is born of slaves and a brother of slaves. It’s utterly delusional, and she doesn’t back down the entire time. She just keeps persisting, making her look almost insane.

Aaron’s reaction makes total sense here. He doesn’t live by hopes in nothing, but more grounded down on how earth actually is. He tries to shut down Miriam’s babbling before she instills the prince’s wrath and gets them punished. He yanks at her, pushes her away, tries to shut her up, makes excuses about what she’s saying, and begs for Moses not to listen to her words. Wide-eyed, bumbling, and frantic, he at one point even falls to his knees begging for mercy from Moses. Aaron treats Moses with the expectation this man is simply Egyptian royalty. Simply, Aaron’s being a smart bloke acting prudently according to matters as they are.

It’s a ridiculous, chaotic interaction. No one’s helping one another; each sibling is at odds from the other. Moses finds the two Hebrews offensive and stands over them threatening them. Aaron fears that Moses and Miriam will get him physically harmed and starts frantically yanking her out of the way. Miriam is trying to speak to Moses about faith and forgiveness but keeps getting shut down by both of them, eventually ending up kneeling on the ground, crying.

In a way, Aaron’s actions and Moses’ actions make the most sense. Moses has grown up in a societal structure where slaves talking like this are offensively out of line. Aaron is acting according to that social paradigm and trying to save his - and his sister’s - neck from an angry official. Miriam’s the one who is out of line, acting completely out of societal norms or expectations. She’s putting herself at risk for beliefs that seem ludicrous.

But she does one thing that hits home for Moses.

She starts to sing Jochebed’s lullaby.

And Moses recognizes it.  

I love this little visual moment, where Miriam and Jochebed are animated from the same angle, the same way, with the same expression, singing the same song. It’s a flashback to the moment Jochebed placed her son on the Nile.

Personally, I don’t think it’s the visual that makes Moses’ heart skip a beat. It’s the song that Miriam is singing. If you pay attention to the first time Moses hangs out with Rameses after the chariot race, you hear Moses whistling that very same lullaby. He knows the tune well enough that he can whistle it.

How did this happen? Well, the movie diverges a bit from the Old Testament, but if you want to supplement the Bible with this movie, then Exodus 2:7-10 is important. In that passage of the Bible, we learn that Jochebed was Moses’ nurse for the first few years of his life. In that time and region of the world, babies were weaned at a later age - toddlerhood. So Jochebed would have been nursing Moses for about three years before he lived in the palace permanently with Seti I, Tuya, and Rameses II. This means he would have had the chance to form memories about that early childhood lullaby. The average age of first memory is four years old, so it’s not entirely implausible that three year old Moses would have been able to retain this song.

When Miriam starts singing the song, Moses realizes with a jolt where it came from. He learned that lullaby from a Hebrew slave… his true mother.

And so he runs.

Moses Leaves Egypt

In the first interaction between Moses, Miriam, and Aaron, we see Aaron trying to stop Miriam and Moses refusing to listen to either of them.

But the next time Moses sees them, he actually pays attention to Miriam.

Miriam, yet again, is doing something crazy outside of societal regulations. She sees a Hebrew slave being whipped, and she’s shouting out for this to stop. As a slave, she has no authority telling an Egyptian slave driver to quit punishing another slave. But this woman, who acts by her heart rather than by worldly reason, cries out anyway.

Moses hears her. In fact, he ignores Rameses II in order to charge up and stop the whipping. 

“Stop it!” Miriam shouts. 
“There’s nothing we can do!” Aaron shouts, fearful that his sister is getting into trouble.
And then Moses, paralleling his sister, shouts out the same words she does… “Stop it!”

This is the first time we really see the trio at their work. Aaron is thinking about how the world currently, concretely works and operates. Miriam is thinking about ideals. And Moses charges out and does something about the problem. Moses is the one who combines the pain the world currently is in (what Aaron understands) with the ideals of what the world could be (what Miriam understands), and takes an action to change situations for the better.

For the first time, Moses defends the Hebrew people over the Egyptians. 

And he… to his horror… kills a man.

All the slaves stare at Moses with terror. It’s interesting to note, though, that while everyone else backs away, Miriam and Aaron don’t. They recognize that Moses was defending them. Miriam even tries to reach out and comfort Moses, but he doesn’t let her touch him. He runs.

The turmoil of who he is and who he is not has built into a climax inside him. Moses has been freaking out over the fact he’s not a blood born Prince of Egypt. Now he’s just murdered someone because of his mental turmoil. He can’t take it, especially since he throws an Egyptian down to his death in the same way he has seen the Pharaoh throw down babies to crocodiles in that despicable mural. And so, telling Rameses II that he’s not who his brother thinks he is, flees Egypt altogether.

Moses Returns to Egypt

When Moses returns to Egypt, Aaron’s no longer as timid as he was the first time they met. This time, Aaron speaks out affrontively, almost vindictively, at Moses. Because Moses is no longer the prince of Egypt, Aaron doesn’t have to be afraid of him. Angrily, he asks Moses how it feels when he’s struck to the ground.

I want to point this out: it’s not just that Aaron’s talking about the slaves as a whole and the fact Moses’ actions against Rameses II have backlashed against them. He’s also talking about something a bit more personal.

The last time they were together, Moses forced Aaron’s sister to the ground.

There’s a reason we always see Aaron with his hands and arms wrapped around Miriam’s shoulders. It’s to grab her to make sure she’s not going to do anything “crazy”… and it’s to protect her. Because he loves and cares about her. Aaron is out there, trying to watch out for her, trying to make excuses for her, trying to physically save her from harm… always.

So he’s going to be extremely spiteful at the man who’s struck his sister to the ground. And he wants to rub it in Moses’ face now that the opposite has happened.

The thing is, Miriam doesn’t have a problem with Moses’ old actions. She actually turns and scolds Aaron for his shameful words. You’ll notice that the look on Aaron’s face is shock. He didn’t expect this and feels chastised. He lets Miriam approach Moses. For, to Miriam, bygones are bygones, and the fact that Moses has doubled their workloads as slaves doesn’t anger her. Instead, she steps up to speak words of thankfulness, faith, and encouragement to her brother. 

Whereas Moses left her crying on her knees the last time they talked…

…this time Miriam kneels down with him.

Suddenly, Miriam doesn’t seem like the crazy one. Aaron now seems more like the one who’s out of touch. Miriam and Moses are able to bond in this moment, while Aaron stands there at the periphery.

This conversation is enough to encourage Moses to immediately speak to Rameses again. Moses turns the river to blood through God’s power and all the Hebrews see it. It gladdens Miriam. Aaron’s still in the dark, though. He complains that the Egyptian priests were able to turn water to blood, too, and that they’re still slaves. He’s still thinking about life in the moment rather than hoping to what’s ahead, what God can do.

We can see that Moses has adopted himself into the Hebrew people, now, rather than the Egyptians. He speaks words of encouragement and faith just like Miriam would. He points out to all the people that the Pharaoh might be able to take their lives, but they cannot take away their faith, and that God has good things in store for his people.

Moses and Aaron Connect

Moses and Aaron don’t actually connect emotionally until after the Exodus begins and the Hebrews are given their freedom.

Aaron has been so concerned with earthly matters, but it’s bogged him down and made him live without faith. Now, he smiles for the first time, leaving behind his old “home,” and journeying away from Egypt as a free man.

Aaron, while traveling behind Moses, reaches up and gently places his hand on his younger brother’s shoulder. He gives a small smile and says no words. Moses responds back with a similar smile and places his hand on top of Aaron’s. It’s a silent exchange, but it’s full of meaning. Aaron apologizes here for being doubtful, faithless, and rude towards Moses. Moses forgives him. At this point, they accept one another as brothers.

The body language completely metamorphoses between Moses, Miriam, and Aaron. At the start of the movie, you see only tension between Moses and his other siblings. But now, all three of them willingly stand together, and there’s not a single shot where they’re not together now.

Moses has transitioned from his Egyptian family to his Hebrew one.

And if that’s not cool enough, visually you can tell that he was always meant to be with the Hebrews. Rameses II and many of the Egyptians are garbed in blue and aqua. Moses, Miriam, and Aaron all wear primarily red. (There’s actually a movie-wide color symbolism of blue representing Egypt and red representing the Hebrews and God. But that’s another analysis in and of itself).

Aaron Demonstrates His Trust

The coolest moment between Moses and Aaron happens when Moses parts the Red Sea.

Aaron throughout the movie has been the one grounded on earth, on facts, on pessimism, on fear. He has done it to survive, and it’s arguably prudent. After the Exodus happens, though, everything changes. He understands the importance of faith and what it can do when you believe. Aaron smiles. Then he doesn’t quit smiling. And, once Moses parts the Red Sea, it’s Aaron who looks to Moses and decides to go first. He has come so far that he displays this great trust in Moses and enters the passageway between the waters.

Not only that, but when Moses is being pursued by the Egyptian army, Aaron screams out in worry for Moses. He wants to make sure that Moses makes it to safety.

And can we please talk about these hugs at the end of the movie? How amazing and wonderful they are?

How far we’ve come from the start of the movie where they were cringing and shouting at one another…

Aaron charges up behind Moses and squeezes him from behind. There’s great happiness and affection in that embrace. These are totally siblings. Totally.

Then Moses and Miriam hug. Moses stares at Miriam for a long time before they give each other a warm hug, and Moses just says two words: “Thank you.”

Those two words wrap up everything that has transpired between the three siblings throughout the entire movie.

He’s thanking her for believing him. For believing in God. For talking to him that one night they first met. Because of Miriam’s faith - that seeming “craziness” - he has been transformed as a man, learned to trust God himself, and delivered his true family out of Egypt. 

“Oh-all that I’ve ever loved!”

Haha, so I listened to an audiobook of a certain book and it ended up being abridged–which means I got wrecked in less time and without enough Gringoire to dull the pain :,{ So here’s a coping sketch.

#36: You’ve Got Mail (1998)

IMDB plot summary: Two business rivals hate each other at the office but fall in love over the internet.

Is this an accurate plot summary? “At the office” is not even close to an accurate description for the characters’ jobs, but other than that, sure. 

And with this week, we complete the trinity of perfect Nora Ephron romcoms. Yes, she has other films, and yes, we should watch them all, but Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally, and You’ve Got Mail are the gold standard of romantic comedies. They set a high bar that, frankly, very few of the 30-something other romantic comedies I’ve watched this year can meet. And why is that? Well, we’ll get to it later. But for now, let’s recap the plot of this completely charming, completely 90s film. 

As the IMDB plot summary states, Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) and Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) are business rivals. Kathleen owns an impossibly lovely children’s bookstore that was originally her late mother’s. Joe Fox owns Fox Books, a Barnes and Noble-like behemoth chain that opens up right across the street from Kathleen’s shop, which is called…The Shop Around the Corner.

Yes, that’s right! As you may remember from waaaay back in week three of this project (Oh, were we ever so young? We hadn’t even suffered through Something Borrowed yet!), You’ve Got Mail is heavily inspired by the James Stewart film The Shop Around the Corner. But this time, the characters don’t exchange something so old-fashioned as letters. No, they’re living out the future by sending emails and instant messages and giving you weird flashbacks by playing those instantly recognizable AOL noises! 

So anyway, Joe and Kathleen are internet penpals who hate each other IRL. Kathleen lives in the biggest, most beautiful apartment in the world and is dating a bespectacled Greg Kinnear. Joe’s dating Parker Posey and his dad is Rich Businessman Dabney Coleman. On paper, they’re terrible for each other. But on AOL instant messager, they’re talking about movies and flirting up a storm. Things are going swimmingly until they decide to meet, at which point they recreate, almost exactly, a scene from The Shop Around the Corner, right down to the coworker/Dave Chappelle saying, “Well, if you don’t like Kathleen Kelly, then I can guarantee you won’t like this girl…because she is Kathleen Kelly.” 

Some amicable breakups happen (seriously, has there ever been a more pleasant breakup than the one between Kathleen and Greg Kinnear?). Kathleen’s bookstore closes. Joe has an existential crisis in an elevator. Eventually he realizes he has to get Kathleen to love him and, going against romcom tradition, he executes a series of small gestures (buying her stuff at the farmer’s market! Visiting her when she’s sick! Taking her to lunch!) instead of a grand gesture. And you know what? It works. Because by the end of this movie, if you’re not physically aching for Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan to kiss in a park with a golden retriever by their sides, then you might actually be missing a heart.

Because here’s the thing about You’ve Got Mail, and about all of the films in the Ephron/Ryan trio: it’s good. Like, really good. Like, significantly better than other romantic comedies. And, if I could basically repeat what I said in my posts on Sleepless in Seattle and When Harry Met Sally, that’s because Nora Ephron understood sadness. She understood heartbreak, defeat, and despair. And in You’ve Got Mail, perhaps even more than in Sleepless in Seattle, she showed that even when good things happen to us, life is just sad. Sometimes it really effing sucks. I mean, Meg Ryan loses her store, the one that belonged to her late mother. She misses her mother, viciously, throughout the entire film. And when she loses her store, it’s clearly a huge emotional blow for her. That scene where she sits in the children’s department at Fox Books and tearfully helps a woman find the “shoe books” is wrenching. It’s easy to just remember the bouquet of sharpened pencils and “don’t you just love New York in the Fall” and forget about the thread of sadness that runs through the whole movie, but it’s there, tying everything together. 

Kathleen’s sadness is so pervasive that the ending feels more than just earned; it feels like a giant victory. Because throughout all the crappy things that happen, Kathleen doesn’t give up. She has hope that things will get better, that she’ll be able to start over. That’s why I started crying during that first montage set to the Cranberries’ Dreams (the most hopeful song in the world) and kept going through the scene where she decorates the shop window for Christmas and continued when she talks about her life being small and finally ended up openly sobbing at “I wanted it to be you so badly.” I’m tearing up just typing those words. 

Nora Ephron understood, perhaps more than any other romcom writer, that love doesn’t fix everything. It can’t bring back wives or mothers, or resurrect failing businesses, or turn you into a different person. But what it can do is make it all worth it, despite all the pain and the heartbreak and the loneliness. What made Nora Ephron so, so special was that she never sugarcoated things. I’ve enjoyed plenty of romantic comedies this year that don’t come anywhere close to grappling with real sadness, and that’s fine. But Nora Ephron was never afraid to explore the darkness and show us why the light matters so much. She was never afraid to show us that hope can keep us afloat in a life that sometimes seems so much more than we can bear. 

Stray Thoughts:

-So last week, after watching The Giant Mechanical Man, I said that Chris Messina should be in every romantic comedy. And then, lo and behold, I remembered that he has a bit part in You’ve Got Mail. My Chris Messina prayers were answered and I’m grateful. 

-But Chris Messina is far from the only star in the supporting cast! Steve Zahn, Jean Stapleton, Parker Posey, Dave Chappelle, and the aforementioned Rich Businessman Dabney Coleman all show up. 

-Everything about this movie is cozy. The cast wears almost exclusively giant, beige clothing and Kathleen’s apartment is fantastically light-filled and beautiful. You get the beauty of New York in the Fall, of course, but you also get New York at Christmas and New York in the Spring, and guess what? None of those involve anything remotely dirty or dark. It’s just well-lit interiors and flower-filled parks. 

Romantic comedy cliches: Penpals, opposites attract, a guy with a dog, a houseboat (why is this a cliche, even? I have no idea), wacky coworkers, a wise old person who gives advice

Is this a good movie? This is the best movie.

Did I like this movie? It might be my favorite romantic comedy. 

Did this movie make me believe in love? What do you think? It made me sob no fewer than five times. 

Would I watch this movie again? I should just watch this movie on a weekly basis. I hate other movies for not being this movie. 

If you have any suggestions for my year of romcoms (or if you just want to try to figure out who today’s Tom Hanks is), send me an email at welcometoladyville@gmail.com or find me on Twitter @KerryAnn

I want a love like Gerry’s in P.S. I Love You.

I am not even halfway in the movie yet and I am already sobbing. I’m in the scene of Holly’s 30th birthday and he received the gift Gerry sent him before he died. This movie made me sobbed that I find the need to pause momentarily and vent out a bit about the movie. I thought of posting this on facebook but my friends would think I am lame and who will get me anyways?

Ah tumblr, you knew me better than my facebook friends. 

Okay, this is just a short personal post. I’ll go back and watch the movie.

P.S.

I watched Under The Tuscan Sun before this movie, and I never felt so alone and single in my life. Don’t spoil the movie for me. I’m leaving this as a question post so you can comment. Send me loves.

Always, K.K.
