    That intro was hilarious.

    It's more marriage than Stockholm. The movie gives her a new "castle" and the man she will learn to love

    To be honest, I think we tend to be a little obsessed with "arcs" when it comes to characters. Like, do Belle or Pocahontas really change that much during the course of their films? No. But did Jesus really change that much in his story in the bible? No–yet his story is still greatly remembered and beloved. Similarly, Belle and Pocahontas don't change, but they carry the weight of their stories through their actions. Belle makes things happen in this movie. She isn't a character like Sleeping Beauty where everything happens to her and she just reacts. She's an active agent who genuinely adds something unique to her movie. Perhaps we simply overlook the greatness of Belle's character because we're culturally taught to overlook it in favor of her romance at the end. To me, I feel like the marriage at the end is more like a prize or reward for Belle, rather than her character's "self-actualization".

    This reminded me of a TV movie that I saw years ago starring Linda Blair and Martin Sheen called, "Sweet Hostage". The promo in the TV Guide (yes, it was that long ago)showed two arms bound by ropes and holding a rose.

    I agree a lot with this video. Very interesting. Funny too because I think this movie fits the opposite idea with from the Beast perspective it is Lima Syndrome. Where the kidnapper ends up sympathizing with the captive and ends up letting them go.

    Wait but how is belle denied her self-actualization? She hasn’t established any talents or potential that needs to be realized. She reads books and wants adventure, both things that she fulfilled throughout the narrative

  14. Bill Henry July 7, 2019 at 7:16 pm

    Correct me if I am largely mistaken but do you not include subtitles for the assistance of people hard of hearing, or deaf? So what, realistically is the benefit of naming a piece of music in the subtitles if the general presumption is that the people you are subtitling for have likely not heard that piece of music?

  20. Ben H July 12, 2019 at 11:17 pm

    I think the whole discourse around whether this film shows 'stockholm syndrome' or not is kind of useful in that it highlights how mental illness diagnoses in the real world affect our perception of things i.e. if someone is labelled with a certain diagnosis, we focus more on things about them that fit that preconceived view and ignore things that lie outside of it, so it just simplifies/flattens things out, much like how viewing people in the real world purely in terms of mental disorder categories based on arbitrary symptoms that are placed together in a DSM – which changes constantly btw – can be stigmatising for people suffering with mental distress and limits who they can be (obviously i'm not saying diagnosis is never useful – i myself as someone suffering a lot with mental illness have found certain labels helpful, but we can remember that they are socially constructed labels that have the ability both to open things up and close things down for us).

  21. Maytal Acedo July 13, 2019 at 1:09 am

    I like her take on this but seriously who come up with this bad fan theory 2 this?!

  22. DragonLovingGirl6 July 13, 2019 at 2:16 pm

    Wait a second, isn't that a nice arc for Belle though? Belle starts out in a place that mocks her for her ideas and interests. She wants to have 'adventure in the great wide somewhere' because where she is now makes her feel trapped. She's an outcast in her own home. And for a while she feels just as trapped while with the Beast. But as the Beast calms down and becomes a decent person, she stays of her own free will. Beast gives her the library, and she's like 'wow, this dude doesn't care I'm a bookworm? He even encourages it's?!' And thus she stays because now there is someone who appreciates and accepts who she is, instead of trying to mold her into something they want.

    And there we have the 'want' and 'need' again. Belle WANTS to escape people because they want to change her for themselves, but she just NEEDS to be loved and appreciated for all she is to find a place where she feels home.

    In a way, it's kind of a similar story as Beast. (though he needed to change and calm the f*ck down, though his own aggression and self image might have been molded by the society of rich @$$holes he was surrounded by. He did calm down rather quickly after all after Belle showed it wasn't his imperfections that made her run. And also after his staff stopped poking him over 'sitting upright' and 'smiling'.)

    Broke: Belle has Stockholm Syndrome
    Woke: the Beast has Lima Syndrome

  26. Sati July 15, 2019 at 9:37 pm

    I always thought her whole experience with the beast was her adventure, especially since she got to have her own story. She got to experience magic and enchantment, face dangers, find love etc. and now she will have her prince with whom she can go on to have more adventures. She might even have learned to appreciate getting to have a normal life that she took for granted and was bored with, which the people in the castle were craving, and that while adventures are great, life doesn't always have to be full of thrills and chills.

  29. Genevieve Atwater July 18, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    I actually have this theory that my dad and I developed about the disney princess archetype and how they are not actually usually the protagonist of their stories, but the role model set up for other characters to live up to. They have character growth, usually guardian self realization in some form, but the main change in the story is another character who changes because of their kindness or example. The Little Mermaid is far more about Triton and Sebastian than Ariel, and Mushu changes, while Mulan only comes to realize that she was worth something all along. Nothing wrong with this, but it changes the way you see these characters if you look at them with it in mind. Belle doesn't have to change because she's not the protagonist at all: she's the sun shining light down on the people around her. Some of them accept that light and are eventually rewarded for their change, but others reject her example and fall to their deaths.

  30. arrow77 July 22, 2019 at 7:48 pm

    It's mostly about Stockholm Syndrome. The problem with going too much in-depth with your analysis is that you end applying real-life psychology to cartoon characters. You can't really diagnose Batman villains because their behaviour is exaggerated and no person in real life would actually react that way. A Disney film has teh same limitations.

    Belle is a fairy tale princess. She was never meant to be realistic and so, she isn't. Because she's never shown to be particularly afraid, and because the viewers know they're watching a Disney romance, the Beast never looks particularly threatening but if you remove all the happy songs and all the glitter, and reduce the story to its essential, it's a story of a woman who stayed in a castle not because she wanted to but because she felt obligated to. It's her unrealistic ability to look beyond Beast's flaws that changes the dynamic of the story, not anything that Beast does. A normal woman in the same situation would have been terrified and probably scarred for life, and the Beast had no way of knowing Belle would be so strong when he asked her to stay. While it may have several differences with the official definition, a woman falling in love with her kidnapper is as close as it will get for a fairy tale to portray the Stockholm Syndrome.

    But most importantly, should we care that it's the Stockholm Syndrome? Meh. The Sleeping Beauty goes dangerously close to be about necrophilia but I don't think one should necessarily see the story that way. If we can't watch a fairy tale movie without applying adult logic to it, we may as well give up.

    I know I'm years late but you said that in a "desert island/gun-to-the-head" type situation B&tB was one of your….was it two or 2 and 1/2….? top favorite Disney movies. What is the other one (or 1 and 1/2)?

  33. Dumbledoresarmy13 July 24, 2019 at 5:12 am

    Well, Mulan's goal was just not to have her dad go to war… and she pretty much accomplished that and then saved China on top of that. The marriage bit was something she was kind of working toward at the very start, but being a perfectly mannered lady to make a perfect wife was not her forte. In the end, she nets a hottie by being her own bad-ass self and being willing to work hard. She goes through an arc as well as the main soldiers. The general guy is basically just another prize she wins at the end, not much of an arc for him other than getting over the stick up his ass about the army rules.

    disney messed up my notion of relationships for a while

  35. LittleWebHead 87 July 25, 2019 at 12:36 pm

    And this video is why every video essayist on YouTube besides Lindsay Ellis is stupid and needs to go away.

  36. Cara Heller July 26, 2019 at 12:26 pm

    I'd have to disagree with you with Mulan being in that trope that a man defines her or rather is her end of the journey. She wants to save her father, and she succeeds (and more). She wants to bring honour to her family, but knows that the only way to do that is to marry well, knows that she is not a submissive thing and will not make a good traditional wifey, and so says screw all of it and joins the army. Shang is ultimately less important than Shin Po, Ling, and Yao in the sense of men (in a very patriarchal society) believing in her. Mulan 2 is a disaster of the trope, since 90% of it is about the act of marriage itself imo, but I think the first one at the very least tried to stay away from it.
    Also, I mean Jasmine's dream was to marry for love, and she got that goal by marrying Aladdin, so while it's in the trope it doesn't bother me so much. Plenty of other stuff bothers me, but that part doesn't really.

    Love your videos by the way, you're reasonable in your analyses and back up your opinion with rationality and facts. I appreciate that!

    I really appreciate your channels and reviews and somewhat agree that this does not completely qualify as Stockholm Syndrome even though regardless of it is “her decision” he LITERALLY holds her captive.

    But this relationship is super abusive and so fucked up to be sold as a love story to young girls.

    What redeeming qualities does the Beast have? What does he offer HER other than a library?

    It is all kinds of fucked up.

  43. Sofía Jiménez August 5, 2019 at 1:28 am

    I do NOT think she has Stockholm Syndrome: she refuses to 'accept' the Beast's abusive behaviour; she WILLINGLY stays in the castle to take her father's place.

    I'd say that maybe Rapunzel has it, or Quasimodo.

  44. Rubena Alexander August 5, 2019 at 7:59 pm

    At the age of 10 years old, I read an article online about how beauty and the beast thought girls that they can change abusive men. You pointed out that the beast was never abusive. Actually he only had one loud outburst in the movie. And that outburst came because he never had a family or social interactions with people, or any contact with human beings after all. Which makes him the underdog. I mean he is the underdog so much to the point that he got cursed because he, as an eleven year old, logically believed in stranger danger. Beast's character arc was that he transitioned from being normal to being ridiculously self-sacrificing. I mean he's the hero and all but did he really deserve the underdog treatment HE GAVE HIMSELF?

    Discord and Fluttershy were based on Beauty and Beast relationship

  47. oMuStIiA August 15, 2019 at 10:16 am

    Honestly I always found the Beast's attitude to be understandable to some degree, I'm not saying being a dick is excusable but I can see why he would behave the way he does. Why would he get so upset over a trespasser? Well the last person who approached his house cursed him to become a hideous beast along with everyone else in the building because he, a child, didn't let a stranger into his home. And called her ugly I guess, like a typical child would. He's has no parental figures apparently, just a bunch of servants who bicker amongst themselves and never seem to serve any real caretaker role for him. So he's turned into a monster and thus must isolate himself from a society which would fear him, while also needing to find someone to love him if he wants to ever be human again, and his only company are basically his employees. So to me it's not a surprise that he'd grow up to be angry, antisocial, and childish. Belle shows up and treats him like a regular person, calling out his bad behaviour but also recognizing his good behaviour. She doesn't cowtow to his demands or demonize him for being flawed, she's kind and strong willed, and he responds to that by caring for her and wanting to be worthy of her affections. By treating him like a human she allows him to learn how to be human again.

    That was how I always interpreted it at least.

    I think the easiest way to dictate those first five points is that they were the baseline requirements in order for Stockholm syndrome to exist, but it doesn't mean that it's there just because those requirements are met.

  50. Mischa Lecter August 16, 2019 at 3:55 am

    I don't think I'd call it, like, an adult, reasonable agreement, if she has to stay, or her father keeps being imprisoned. And if a guy was verbally abusing a girl, throwing tantrums, and behaving violently, later became kinder, and she fell in love with him, would we be in favor of this? Even if it isn't stockholm syndrome, I still don't think we'd call that a healthy relationship.

  51. Sixth Jayhawk August 16, 2019 at 4:59 am

    The whole point of the original fairy tale is the importance of keeping your promises. Belle’s malicious sisters trick her into staying past the deadline, and as a result, the Beast almost dies.

  57. Tiina Wiik August 26, 2019 at 5:35 pm

    I've actually been sort of surprised that this movie isn't a topic for the online outrage squad like, say, Aladdin (exoticism), Mulan (cultural appropriation) or all of the standard princess-in-distress-movies by Disney, because even to my conservative eye Beauty and the Beast is pretty misogynist. Yes, Belle is the whole package: smart, independent thinker, pretty and kind, but notice what's actually the opening theme of the movie and the first song: she's not like other girls. "All the other girls" are vain and superficial, fawning over Gaston, or fat moms or grannies. Belle stands out because she doesn't spend time with boys and because she reads books. So in fact the movie opens with a song that paints a terrible picture of women in general and makes smart, intellectually motivated girls out to be a once-in-a-village exception.

  58. Linden Peters August 27, 2019 at 12:49 pm

    I am learning so much from you, Lindsey! I know this is an old video, but I wanted to thank you, anyway.

    Also, I have a question:
    Is it possible for there to be romance in a movie without it being the "goal" or "solution" to the girl's problems? As in Cinderella, she's rewarded for her kindness, it just happens that part of the reward is a man who loves her.

    No, but it is an unhealthy relationship.

  61. Brenda Kerber August 29, 2019 at 11:56 pm

    no – it's not stockholm syndrome. The whole crux of the thing is in the split second after he fights off the wolves. She goes to get on the horse to leave. She is going to leave. Then you see her look back at him. She realizes that he put his life in danger to save her and so, instead of leaving him there, potentially to die, she has compassion for him and takes him back to the castle to care for him. I don't believe this is Stockholm syndrome at all because, previous to that, she had hardly had even a moment to know who he was – to become involved in a stockholm syndrome dynamic. She had hardly shared more than a few words with him. She sees him as more human and relatable because he tried to save her – and she has human compassion and feels she should do the same for him. AND in the next scene, she fights back at him hard when he pushes her and growls at her. they develop a mutual respect for each other. Even though he later says he's setting her free – that's just symbolic because it's quite obvious she is staying because she wants to.

    It's not Stockholm syndrome though it's still an unhealthy relationship that shouldn't be an example to kids at how love is supposed to work.

  67. DARK MISTRESS September 6, 2019 at 8:54 pm

    Just my two cents but look at how she was quick to leave when the Beast got pissed with her going to the West Wing…Unlike the original Beauty and the Beast story Belle/Beauty, actually had no choice because the Beast sent her father back with the option to either send one of his daughters to take his place or he would have to come back himself…She feels guilty because she asked for the rose so she goes in his place…I mean in the Disney version she could have escaped while the Beast fought off the wolves and I doubt he would have been able to find her once she was gone….It was clear her humanity, conscience and empathy is what made her help him….

  68. Krista Star September 7, 2019 at 7:41 pm

    She looks at him weird at first when he turns back into a human because she’s not sure it’s him at first, not because she didn’t find his human form attractive. Maybe I misunderstood what you said but I don’t get that point.

  69. Allie Brennan September 8, 2019 at 1:59 pm

    I object to the inclusion of Mulan in the Disney “this man is the answer to your need” trope. Mulan’s journey really has little to do with Shang. Her want is to save her father from going off to war, while her need is to accept herself and feel accepted by her family. Shang is a perk.

    Wow! Striaght from not in the DSM to debunked pseudo-science. That's kind of an uncritical examination.

    So…you close with a s**t post. Is it all post-ironic? Is Disney really saying, "Ah, you think it's this, but it's really that."

  76. harmony12345 September 27, 2019 at 11:42 am

    Lindsay I normally love your videos, but Ive got to say on this one I respectfully disagree. I completely understand that B & B doesn't fill all the symptoms of stockholm syndrome, nor that it doesn't make really great other points as you point out in your video about "othering others" "not seeing true beauty and humanity etc" but I don't think to simply say that anyone who calls it out for stockholm syndrome is uneducated or trying to be edgy etc is right either. A lot of the points you make on Belle are quite undermined by the unspoken aspects of this scenario.
    Yes its true that Belle made the deal with her Beast on her terms, but she is under the impression that serious harm may come to her father if not otherwise. Just because the Beast doesn't make explicit vocal threats does not mean the implication is not there.

    Likewise the fact that Belle is a strong autonomous character does not mean that she isn't essentially coerced into making the deal with the beast or following his rules (even if she breaks them). Just like in the real world we talk about informed/enthusiastic consent in regards to risky activities rather than just the word "yes". Belle believes that her deal will save her father, in what she believes are life threatening sentences. There is no way that under no threat or duress that Belle being the strong independent character she is would ever agree to stay or likely interact with the Beast.

    This then undermines the entire premise that Belle is willfully living with the Beast, and its arguable to say that if the Wolves hadn't attacked she would have even stayed.
    I do think that overall it also reinforces the toxic narrative that Men change for the better because of the women in their lives, something as you mentioned was the counter to the narrative of the original story in which Beauty was the protagonist.

    By your own definition B & B falls a lot into many of the essential outlined points of Stockholm syndrome, and Im glad its finally getting addressed in the media. Whilst its not perfect, its still a necessary conversation.

    Anyway still great work on the video and hope you keep it up! 🙂

    I love the Enchanted Christmas, And it actually fills in holes in the original story. It shows how the beast learned to be less better. It is a Christmas favorite in my home. It restored my faith in women after my divorce.

  80. just an alternative emo kid October 4, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    i don't think it's exactly stockhold syndrome, but it does kinda support the trope where "all the big scary agressive man needed, was a loving woman to change him", which is… bad. the trope is bad and i hope little kids can learn how to forgive people from this movie, while still remembering that someone else's emotional growth isn't their responsibility. i love beauty and the beast, it's a great movie, but i don't support this trope (another instance of this trope is netflix's "the kissing booth")

    This story still teaches women that you can save your abuser by pOwEr Of lOvE. And this story is aimed to kids, what is way worse than 50 shades. I'm not saying that kids are stupid, but they are naive and may easy contain that pattern. Well I watched it when I was 6 and started hating movie immediately, but I couldn't explain why. So maybe not a Stockholm syndrome, but this movie is dangerous, imo the most dangerous from Disney catalogue.

    I feel people inject "Stockholm syndrome" in this movie because it's about forgiveness, but that's a trait that's becoming less and less common. People are getting more and more petty by the day and would rather see someone suffer.

    No, its about a guy who changes because someone gives him a chance and looks past his appearance and mean facade. Its about forgiveness. I wish people would stop trying to twist it into something evil and problematic.

    Revisionism is bad.
    Everything from the media of our past is either "problematic", "racist", "sexist", you name it.
    Some things are, and it's important to discuss them. But fucking Beauty and the Beast? People have too much time on their hands.

    yes; thats literally what the book is about. its designed to teach young girls to accept arranged marriages, even if their husband is a 'beast' because if they are the perfect demure wife, they can change turn them into a gentleman.
    the film, of course, is made to appeal to modern sensibilities.
    its probably why they made the beast a sexy furry, when all old illustrations of the story ive seen depict him as a distinctly ugly pig/wild boar

    Whenever people start babbling about how this movie is so awful because it's about "Stockholm syndrome" i refer them to Tuck Everlasting, a story with similar attributes where the girl literally dumps the guy and magic and superpowers to go travel the world AND marry happily AND have kids AND not regret her decision bc in the end she reckons she lived her own life to the fullest.
