Why does Moses care?

Posted by Amy Stretten on October 9, 2002 at 20:04:38:

The movie "A Respectable Trade" can definately be considered upseting, for various reasons. Out of all of the disturbing scenes, however, the fact that Moses went back to Fransis, compromsing his own safety, really bothered me! He was willing to be found and killed trying to save the lives of the other house slaves and by going to visit her. However, she only cared for herself. Not even the baby that she was carrying mattered to her more than her own safety. (I'm sorry, but how can you keep a baby to term and then, although more than capable of taking care of it, give it away?) She was nothing more than selfish and materialistic!! She thought she was the victim although she owned and treated human beings no better than animals! I just don't see why Moses cared about her.
