The Refusal of the Call in Goodfellas (1990) is the young Henry Hill's father's resistance to Henry working at the cab stand and therefore entering the New World / exiting the Ordinary World. This is the interdictor function, which is overcome by Henry's friend's putting the postman's head in the oven and warning him not to deliver any more letters from the school to the house.  

The 2000+ stage Hero's Journey and Transformation through a New World/State is the template upon which the vast majority of successful stories and Hollywood blockbusters are based upon. Learn about this at
