Sleepless in Seattle

An early 90’s classic that shaped the Rom Coms of the present

Sleepless in Seattle is an iconic movie from the early 90’s. I wouldn’t be surprised if most people my age watched the film growing up, in fact, many of my friends reminisced when I told them I was watching it for this blog.

There are several reasons why Sleepless in Seattle is an icon.
Nora Ephron; the writer and director; set out to achieve something different from what movie goers had seen previously in this genre. Unlike other romantic comedies, the two potential lovers share hardly any screen time. Their stories are interlinked but told in parallel.

Although it is a rom com, the characters are relatable. In essence, this story could be about anyone of us, albeit with a bit of Hollywood magic thrown in for good measure. This was a seismic shift in a genre that followed the same tired formula of the pretty damsel saved by the handsome man and them falling madly in love.

The representation of women in film has changed in 27 years.
I hadn’t watched Sleepless in Seattle for many years and although at the time I enjoyed it, watching it as a woman of 2020, it left a different impression. It was ground-breaking in 1993, however it came across as dated, and not just because of the 90’s fashion. Meg Ryan’s character Annie was skittish, unsure of herself and lacking in substance. It’s a shame really, it would have been nice to see her with a bit of sass, but that’s likely not what 1993 viewers would have wanted. What is most concerning with her character is that every decision she made [in the film] was centred on men and love. At one point she flew across the country to meet Sam; Tom Hanks’ character; but instead ended up watching him from afar play on a beach with his son. Maybe in 1993, this was considered romantic but not in 2020. There is nothing wrong with pursuing love, but to devote your every decision to that is questionable.

There was one moment in the film that was particularly cringe worthy. Rita Wilson’s character Suzy was describing the ending to an Affair to Remember; a film referenced multiple times in Sleepless; and was ridiculed by Sam, Jonah and her husband Greg; for getting emotional and crying. As if it was something that men never do. They rolled their eyes and had a looked alarmed as she started crying. It was demeaning and deprecating. I know most movie goers would have laughed at this scene, including me, but in 2020 I have to believe we have moved on from this style of humour.

Thankfully, there was a positive female relationship in Sleepless which showcased the strength of the sisterhood. Annie and her best friend Becky; played brilliantly by Rosie O’Donnell; are as close as you can get. Their relationship was wonderful, you could see how much they supported each other no matter how extreme their endeavours were. Instead of being pitted against each other, they were each other’s rocks. Although most of their dialogue centred around men, they supported each other. It also made for some great scenes. The scene where they are watching the ending of Affair to Remember together on the couch is reminiscent of moments I have shared with my girlfriends. It was a nice touch.

The role of fate in our lives is explored.
Destiny as a theme is carried throughout the film and referenced several times by Meg Ryan’s character Annie. There are a number of moments when Sam and Annie are so close to meeting up but miss each other. These moments help to build the suspense and hope in the audience. We want them to meet, we want their destiny to be fulfilled.

This storyline reaches its climax at the end of the film. It is so quintessentially over the top but just what a romantic comedy needs, even one steeped in reality. However, the older I get, the more cynical I become, and I struggled with it. The scene starts with Annie having dinner with her fiancé Walter. She tells him she is leaving him and is meeting a man at the top of the Empire State Building. He accepts this and she leaves.  Let’s be honest, there is no way a guy is going to take it that well when you tell him you are leaving him for someone else you’ve never met (especially after he has bought you a Tiffany’s engagement ring and champagne).

Even if I don’t agree with it now, Nora Ephron finished the film the way the viewer would have wanted, with Sam and Annie finally meeting against the backdrop of New York.

The real love story in Sleepless
Now obviously, there must be a happy ending and Sleepless in Seattle certainly has that. Sam’s eyes meet the Annie’s and that’s it, they are in love…and they live happily ever after of course.

I was more interested in the relationship between Sam and his son Jonah. At the beginning of the movie they lose a mother and wife, and the two of them have to muddle their way through their new life together.

They were two people dealing with shared grief in their own way. It was really quite lovely to see their connection and bond on screen. In fact, Jonah is the catalyst for the romantic adventure Sam undertakes in the film.

They had some fantastic scenes together and I felt privileged to see this relationship on screen. Nora Ephron’s direction made it feel like I was personally invited into their home. I don’t recall many films from the 90’s that had such positive father and son relationships. As a father, Sam was engaged, emotionally intelligent and connected to his child. This is the great love story in this film.

Nora Ephron’s legacy lives on
Sleepless in Seattle is one of many iconic films written or directed by Nora Ephron. Most notably When Harry Met Sally, You’ve Got Mail and Julie & Julia. Nora was a trailblazer of the industry and her legacy will live on for many years to come. Her work inspired the people around her and she helped pave the way for many women making a name for themselves in Hollywood now. She wasn’t afraid to smash the glass ceiling with a hammer and was unashamedly proud of her work.

There is no doubt Nora Ephron wrote a good screenplay, filled the movie with top actors and directed each scene beautifully. It would not have been easy to film two separate stories and keep them flowing as well as she did. I am glad I watched it again because of the great one-liners but also to watch a wonderful relationship between a father and son. On reflection, I think that’s the beauty of what Nora created, a rom com with depth, featuring several love stories. I need to park my cynicism at the door and appreciate the film for what it meant in 1993, not where we are as a society now.

Black Panther

Challenging the status quo in a male dominated genre.

Courage                      Family                         Tradition                     Innovation

Some of you may be asking why a superhero movie about an African king, directed by a man has been included within this blog. Out of the 9 producers of this film, there are two females, which warrants its inclusion. More importantly though, T’Challaaka The Black Panther, is supported by a female team. Ryan Cooglar could have quite easily focused most of the movie on the battle between T’Challa and Killmonger and it still would have been a success. He chose however to place the women supporting T’Challa central to the story.

Diverse female representation is a key pillar of the film.
In Wakanda not only are the women treated equally to the men, they can ascend to any position in society (with the exclusion of king). The core team of women supporting the King are; the general of the King’s personal guards Okoye, T’Challa’s sister Shuri, the master engineer, and his love interest (and Wakandan spy) Nakia.

There are many other strong female representations in Black Panther. The king’s personal bodyguards, the Dora Milaje, are all women and female tribe elders sit on T’Challa’sadvisory council. Each of these characters collectively showcases the roles women take in society and their ability to take on positions more commonly perceived in the real world as being for men. Central traits to each of these characters is their confidence, strength and assertiveness.

The importance of the Black Panther film is not limited to gender representation. It is the first superhero movie set in an African country, stars a nearly complete black cast and celebrates black culture. The film challenges the status quo expertly and effectively. This has resulted in it being one of the most successful superhero films of all time, with a sequel in the works. The significance of this movie cannot be understated. Although the focus of the movie is on Africa and the US, the issues around privilege, prejudice and racial bias addressed in the film are commonplace across the Western World.

Yes, it is a Superhero film with all the applicable bells & whistles.
I am a huge fan of Superhero films. I have watched all MCU & DC movies (even the bad ones) and where possible, in chronological order. They are easy to watch and highly entertaining regardless of whether the storyline is any good. Despite certain director’s opinions on this genre, there are millions of people who agree with me. Black Panther stands apart from other movies in the superhero genre because it has depth and meaning and left a lasting impression on me. 

Being a superhero film, it must include the golden triangle of; fight scenes, tech and triumph over evil. But underpinning all this, is a story about family and our place in the world. 

Black Panther leads off from the end of Captain America Civil War with T’Challa having the unenviable task of taking over as king from his recently departed father, T’Chaka. He is young and must lead a country shut off from an ever-changing and in some places, unstable world. Chadwick Boseman plays the role with grace, humility, compassion & fortitude. He is T’Challa. Throughout the film he has to grapple with his own concerns about living up to his fathers legacy and carve out his own way. On top of this, he is challenged by an outsider who believes Wakanda hasn’t done enough to assist black people suffering around the world.

The theme of Nationalism is weaved throughout the story.
The Nationalism narrative is seeded throughout the movie with both sides of the argument represented. The fictional country of Wakanda is rich in Vibranium, a metal with a plethora of good uses. This metal has made Wakanda a rich African nation, however they have hidden this from the world, who perceives them as a poor country. This is born out of fear from deception and loss. Similarly, the Nationalist diatribe often seen in the news is also from fear though its origin and reason is vastly different. The main antagonist, Erik Killmonger (played brilliantly by Michael B. Jordan who has the right mix of anger and resentment), believes Vibranium can help solve the problem’s facing his fellow humans. However, he doesn’t necessarily want to use it in the best way. It’s a decision T’Challa and the rest of the council grapple with throughout the second half of the film.

I’m hoping this storyline in connection with the ever-constant news about the Border Wall & refugee crisis made people stop and think about their responsibility as human beings in a globalised world.

The balance between tech & tradition
Innovation is a key component of the Iron Man films and it’s nice to see another MCU character being given the innovation baton. In this instance it’s not T’Challa who is the tech genius, it is his sister Shuri. She is forthright, smart, sassy and doesn’t fit the typical princess mould. What is particularly impressive for me is her confidence in her abilities. She is supported in her endeavours not only by her brother but also her mother, Ramonda, who allows her to be the best version of herself. Her inclusion in this film is important because little girls can look at her and say, “I can do that”. I also enjoyed seeing the relationship between Shuri and T’Challa, who have great on-screen chemistry. I suspect the actors had lots of fun making this film together.

The women in front and behind the lens are instrumental to the success of this film.
Black Panther has showcased the diverse roles women can play seamlessly. Ryan Cooglar and his team should be applauded for this, as the issue of limited role types continues to plague Hollywood.

His behind the scenes team included several women across cinematography, costume design, set design, editing, casting and production design. It was a deliberate choice by Coogler, and one he understands is important to further increase gender diversity in the industry.

I can’t finish this post without mentioning the brilliant Danai Gurira. Mostly because watching her in anything after seeing her kick-arse on many seasons of The Walking Dead is an absolute treat! She is so damn cool and absolutely nails this role as the conservative & protective warrior.

A movie worthy of the accolades.
I want to leave you with words from T’Challa’s address at the UN at the end of the movie to announce Wakanda’s opening of their borders. We should all reflect on these words given the current political climate globally.

‘The wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we are one single tribe’

A League of Their Own

Resilience                    Choice                         Friendship                   Strength

I watched this movie several times as a teenager & young adult and certainly enjoyed it for its entertainment value however I don’t think I fully understood the significance of this movie or the story. I’ve spent the last decade learning about the women who paved the way for the freedom and choice I am afforded, and as a result, it’s a different experience watching this film now.

A League of their Own is set during World War II and centres on a group of women who play in the first women’s baseball league in the United States, while their men (and most male baseball players) are away fighting. Although the characters are fictional, the League and the women’s experiences are based on reality.

We wouldn’t have been given the opportunity to watch this remarkable story if it wasn’t for the documentary of the same name made in 1987 by Kelly Candaele and Kim Wilson.

The late Penny Marshall stumbled across the documentary and saw the need for these women’s’ stories to be put on the silver screen.

What was the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League?

The league was set-up to keep Baseball team owners in the money whilst the war was on amidst fears that baseball as a sport would become extinct while the men were away. As a result, the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League or AAGPBL for short was born.

The players were essentially a short-term sub for the male players with the expectation that when the war was over, professional men’s baseball would resume as if the AAGPBL never existed.

My first thought was for the women who had been given an opportunity beyond marriage & children – to have that ripped away would have been heart breaking. The film suggested there was an assumption amongst the leadership that these players would easily forget about playing and revel in a return to their normal life. Fortunately, in real life, the league continued on until 1954, well after the end of WW2.

A very different time.

The film offers us an insight into a different era, where women weren’t given the plethora of choices many of us have today. Where the assumption was that they were good for having children, tending to the home and were judged largely on their looks. This was seeded it into the dialogue throughout the film. It wasn’t overt, rather as if it was done to show us that it was simply part of the vernacular of the day.

For example, throughout the film the players are called “girls”, “honey”, “darling”, “gal” and the team names followed suit with the Belles, Chicks & Peaches – words we now consider derogatory & demeaning, but they were part of everyday language in the 40’s.

It showed me that although we have a long way to go, we have come so far. I personally don’t know how I would have handled it, being judged for my looks with the assumption I had nothing else to offer. I can assure you, my inability to sit quietly in the corner with my pretty smile would have been my undoing.

In keeping with the image of the time, all players were expected to attend etiquette lessons, fit the beauty ideal, not drink, smoke or cuss and were given dresses for uniforms. This was to appease the viewing public, who already had strong negative opinions about the league and its players. I have no doubt image and brand are still very important today in baseball, as with all sports, but I have to wonder what emphasis is placed on male players clothing, masculine behaviour and looks by the league, then and now.

A strong cast playing diverse, dynamic characters was pivotal to the story resonating with the audience.

Every cast member contributed to the success of the film and provided weight to the story. Standouts for me are Tom Hanks as the washed-up disinterested manager, Lori Petty as the ‘other’ sister and Rosie O’Donnell & Madonna who had fantastic on-screen chemistry.

My favourite character in the film is Marla Hooch, played by Megan Cavanagh. Although she wasn’t a principle character in a movie littered with very strong performances, Marla’s story is the one that stayed with me. Her change from an unconfident & meek girl living in the shadow of her father and his dreams, into a woman making her own decisions is what signified to me why this league was so important for women’s development. She didn’t fit the mould of what the league was looking for, despite her obvious talent, but with a push by Dottie & Kit, she was given a chance. Throughout the first half of the film, many jokes were made at her expense, but in a world where looks is of primary importance and she was the ugly duckling, she was easy fodder. It was the second half where she started to blossom and make her own decisions.

With change comes fear & misinformation.

A League of their Own also showed fear mongering, such as older women announcing on the radio that women playing baseball would have a negative impact on children and the family. Many people struggle with change and this results in poor behaviour. Baseball in the 40’s was considered a ‘masculine’ sport, something women should not be associated with.

These feelings are also on display in the first few games the women play. The crowd of mostly men and older women laugh and call names to the girls. Instead of supporting them, they choose to ridicule them. As if these women playing baseball might turn the world on its head. It’s only when the players show their skills and start to display some of their femininity that they are taken seriously.

Unfortunately, even in 2020 there are instances when women are having to prove their abilities in traditionally male sports, with old attitudes still in place on what women can and cannot do. 

Recently, there have been some incredible examples of progression though. The Matildas, the Australian Women’s soccer team, have secured pay parity with the Australian Male team. When the US Women’s soccer team won the 2019 World Cup, it made international news and there were some key standouts such as Megan Rapinoe who stood up against the haters.

Also, the Australian Football League Women’s (AFLW), is now shown in prime time on TV and Women’s Cricket is getting a place on-screen as well. Challenging stereotypes & overcoming sexist vitriol is still the biggest hurdle, but one that will take time and support from the mainstream media & leadership in each field.

The hard moments are what makes it worth it.

This film is packed full of great one-liners. However, one in particular piece of dialogue stands out for me. Towards the end of the film when Dottie Hanson has to make the difficult decision to choose between baseball and her husband, she tells Hank’s character Dugan that baseball is hard. His response is still relevant today, not just in baseball but for life’s difficult moments.

“It’s supposed to be hard,” he says. “If it wasn’t hard everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.”

Frozen 2

Bravery           Growth            Vulnerability               Trust                Love

If you haven’t heard of Frozen, then you have certainly been living under a rock these last six years. Frozen broke the mould for children’s movies and surpassed everyone’s expectations. Although the movie was about love, it was about a different kind of love, a love vastly different to other female centred Disney films. Frozen was able to prove there is an appetite for different stories, with different ‘Happy Ever After’ endings.

As a mother of young children, I am very aware of Frozen. Both of my children (and I) have danced to every song, dressed up as the characters, held special Frozen birthday parties and watched the film at least 1,000 times. We have championed this, although occasionally people have found it surprising that my son was as obsessed with a ‘girls’ film as our daughter, although as it wasn’t overtly feminine, had strong male characters and a great story arc, it was generally accepted. There is still a presumption amongst some adults and children we know that because the two main characters are girls, then it ‘must’ be a girl’s film. We have never told our children they are girls’ movies and as a result, there is no gender bias attached to either of the films.

When the production of Frozen 2 was first announced, I openly wondered how they could top the first film. We have all seen examples of sequels unable to reach the peaks of their predecessor and I was concerned if Frozen 2 couldn’t live up to the standard set, it could taint the story in my children’s minds. My worries were diffused when we watched Frozen 2 for the first time….I will point out we have already seen it twice and will no doubt add a couple of zeroes to that number over the next few years.

A story for both young and older audiences.

Frozen 2 was truly wonderful, it captivated all of us. My children and I were seeing the same film but walked away with a very different experience. What the writers have been able to achieve in the second film was to weave different themes through the film and appeal to multiple audiences.

It is a more mature story, with the characters having depth not seen in the first film and I would suggest that was written, in part, for the adult film watchers. This film also included more adult jokes & references, which for a parent who is going to see this movie at least 100 times, is much appreciated.

Fear of the Unknown is a key theme throughout the film.

Fear can be seen in most of the characters storylines, with Elsa afraid of venturing into another ‘adventure’, Olaf discussing change & getting older in his own light-hearted way and Kristoff worried about Anna’s proposal response.

However, the most significant example of this fear of what is unknown and different is the girls’ grandfather and his contact with the Northuldra people. It was because of his fear and deception, that Elsa, Anna & co had to follow the path set out in the movie.

Inclusiveness is becoming more of a priority

In a positive sign for inclusion and cultural progress, Disney consulted and entered into a contract with the Sámi people, the indigenous people of the Scandinavian region to ensure their portrayal was respectful & culturally accurate.

Disney have been able to portray a complex issue, with examples of indigenous marginalisation unfortunately littered throughout our history, and tell it in a way that is easily digestible for very young audiences. It’s a delicate, highly emotive subject but one that is very important for them to see & hear.

In our house, as I’m sure in others, Disney & its movies is held in high regard. It is refreshing to see they are showing more diverse characters on screen and taking representation seriously. This storyline also provided an opportunity for us to discuss the topic with our children and the importance of diversity, inclusion, respect of others and that different is not something to fear, it is how we learn and grow as individuals & societies.

Yes, there were tears……..and a whole range of emotions experienced.

I also need to admit that I cried in this film…twice…my kids thought it was hilarious. Those who know me well wouldn’t be surprised though as I cry when watching the news, TV commercials, hell I even cry when Ellen does her 12 days of Christmas (She does it every year…and yet I still ball my eyes out every time!). It surprised me that I cried in this film though, namely because it is animated, not real people.

Not only are the characters fictional, but this is a cartoon. Somehow though, the team behind the film were able to convey real-life emotion and experiences that draw in the viewer. Moments like when Elsa discovers her true self (spoiler alert) or when Anna needs to get back up after Olaf disappears, we can put ourselves in their shoes and relate it to similar moments in our own lives.

Elsa, in particular, showed a range of emotions throughout the film. There were moments of Elsa we knew with her nervousness, vulnerability and then elation when she discovered her truth. She questioned her abilities, her path in life and it was refreshing to see a strong character showing vulnerability when she faced adversity. Both Elsa and Anna are examples I use when demonstrating resilience and strength to my children.

Oh the songs…..

I have been a fan of musicals for a long time. They capture your attention and leave a positive emotional imprint. There are songs from big movies of my childhood whose words I still know. Every time I hear these songs I cannot stop singing along and it brightens my day. I’ve noticed in recent years children’s films have had less of a focus on lyrical music and I am pleased to see this trend has started to change.

The music in Frozen 2 is moving, haunting and enchanting. The soundtrack is at the very core of this film, as it was for the first. I believe this film would not be as successful and connect with the audience as it has without the songs.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing every word to Let it Go, Open Door and In Summer for a number of years. I can now add Into the Unknown, Some things never change and When I am older to my Frozen repertoire as the album has been on repeat since we watched the film. The musical geniuses behind the Frozen soundtracks sure know how to produce catchy tunes, so catchy in fact that my wonderful friends, who haven’t even seen the film, are also humming the tune! We even heard grown men singing Into the Unknown on New Years Eve’s in the middle of Australian Bush, it ended up turning into a cross camp sing-off. Music really does bring people together!

One song that stood out for me was Kristoff’s nod to late 80’s rock ballads, Lost in the Woods. As a child of the 80’s it was a wonderful opportunity for me to reminisce. It reminded me of the old video clips I used to watch growing up, particularly Bon Jovi’s Always, what a classic song and an even better video!

Routine & consistency underpinned the story

The film followed a similar formula to the first movie which is perfect for a kid’s film, as routine & consistency is beneficial for children. These included the first scene with young Anna and Elsa conversing with their parents, Anna headlining a positive song at the beginning of the film, Olaf with the great one-liners and singing the humorous songs, Elsa had the big song which now fills my head and the second act provided the meat. Music was also used to link the two films, with similar background music used throughout the second film. There was of course also a happy ending, which is essential in a kids’ film.

A love story, told in a different way

We are all used to the story where the guy gets the girl at the end of the film. Well, this film certainly had it but it was Kristoff’s story that centred on relationship woes, not one of the female characters. Anna did show a bit of romantic irrationality, but it appeared to be included more to support Kristoff’s story, and comic relief, instead of as a main part of Anna’s character. It is a refreshing change to see a male character in a cartoon show such vulnerability.

There was a second, albeit more subtle love story seeded throughout the film and that was the love of friends and the family you choose. Their chosen family is not conventional, it has a snowman, a reindeer, two sisters and a male partner. There is a subtle message here in that your family doesn’t have to fit a particular mould and you support each other when it counts. Ultimately, love is love.

In Summary……

Frozen 2 was enjoyed by my whole family. It is full of love, laughter and catchy-songs which makes for an entertaining experience, but with a very important message: Find out who you are & your purpose.

Even if you don’t have children, take the opportunity to watch this film.

Frozen 2 is currently playing in cinemas in Australia and no doubt across the globe. I am sure it will be released on Disney+ before the end of this year as well.
