Insightful. Something I’m mulling over now.
In the movie The Godfather, two characters in the opening scenes are presented as possible protagonists:
Vito Corleone, the presumptive title character, who from the first scene is shown as the powerful head of a Mafia family.
Sonny Corleone, his hot-headed son, has been groomed as his father’s successor and loves the Mafia life.
On the surface, both seem a logical choice as protagonist of the story. They are the ones who fit into the world of the story, who want to prevail in it. In the beginning, it’s easy to assume that the story will be primarily about one of them.
Then we are introduced to Vito’s youngest son, Michael.
