Lessons from Tangled
I've been wanting to do a blog post on Tangled since the first time I saw the movie in the theater, but I couldn't decide what topic to cover. Honestly, this is one of those movies which does so many things right that it is a pure joy to watch and study (not just watch for enjoyment). I finally decided I would do a series of posts covering a few different topics instead of trying to cram them into one post. Spoilers will follow.
Onto the lesson and one of the deepest parts of the movie. Rapunzel and Mother Gothel's relationship.
I'm not sure how I can use this lesson yet, but if you are working on any stories where you have a character being emotionally abused I highly recommend you study the dynamics of Mother Gothel and Rapunzel's relationship.
