Character 1 Description:
Sweet and smart Amelia. She can be a bit dry & sarcastic, some of her jokes go over her boyfriends head. She's been dating Dean since high school. Recently she has been feeling like something is missing from her life. She thinks it’s because of her choices in the past, but it's Dean that is holding her back and she just needs to realize that. She is subdued at the beginning but her feelings begin to bubble up and burst at the end of the film.
