Analyzing a Character
Assignment: For this assignment, you will write a 4-5 page analysis of a character from
either All that Heaven Allows (Douglas Sirk, 1956) or Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (Rainer
Werner Fassbinder, 1974).
The films are available to rent and stream on Amazon or to watch free on YouTube. See the
links on D2L to the films under Content->Character Analysis->Links to Films for Character
These two movies are related to and possibly direct influences on Todd Haynes’s Far From
Heaven, which you watched for our section on mise-en-scene. Part of the assignment is for you
to think about a character in light of how that character is reworked in the Haynes film.
Description: Choose a significant (round) character from the film and analyze their character
development, drawing upon the elements of character discussed in your textbook (and
optionally the digital materials for the book). Be sure to consider the overall character
arc/transformation, and how that character’s actions impact other characters or the plot. In
other words, what is the function of the character in this film?
Analysis: Your analysis may include, but is not limited to:
• A description of the character’s values, lacks, needs, and goals
• Physical/visual description, using concrete sensory detail and language and drawing
from the mise-en-scene (motifs associated with the character; props, costumes, makeup,
hairstyles, settings, colors, lighting, etc.). What do some of these tell us about the
• How the character’s goals come into conflict with other characters’ goals
• Stages of the character’s transformation—what happens when?
• Use of language/dialogue
• Description of character’s decisions that lead to further action (cause and effect)
• Failure to transform
• Role as catalyst for other characters’ transformations
• Significance of character in film’s rising stakes and climax
• Grammar and spelling count in this assignment;
• please include a BRIEF introduction and conclusion to this essay (use the instructions
from our class session for how to write introductions and conclusions)
