Feeling like your time in lock-down is not exactly heroic? There is another really interesting story to tell. As we are forced to go inside, literally, we are also going inside figuratively; spending a lot more time with our selves. This is a rich landscape for stories of coming to know who we really are spiritually, creatively and sexually. It is a crucible for discovering what is meaningful to us, and our protagonist. Movies like Joker, Jojo Rabbit, Black Swan, Moonlight, and About a Boy all have strong themes of embarking on this inner voyage of discovery. They follow a very different story structure from the hero’s. It is the journey of the Virgin archetype as s/he awakens to our right to just be our self, separate from what everyone expects.
