Character Descriptions: >> >>
Jim Stark >> 17 years old. A confused and angry but shy and sincere teenager who is trying to survive life in his new home town of Los Angeles.

He is trying to please his parents and at the same time fighting a desperate battle to avoid being like them. >> >>
Plato >> A disturbed but gentle 15 year old who looks to Jim for friendship and family, in part because his own parents have never been around to take care of him. Small for his age. >> >>
Judy Brown >> A lonely 16 year old girl who falls in love with Jim, who had earlier associated with the tough kids because she could not find love or support from her own family. Quite attractive, for which she compensates by being sullen and indifferent. >> >>
Jim’s father >> A loving but weak and insecure parent for Jim, who is dominated by his wife. >> >>
Jim’s mother >> An angry and frustrated person who insists her family move to another city every time her family has problems. Chic but rather hard faced. >> >>

Miss Hannington >> School teacher with no illusions about the present generation of school children. >> >> Lecturer >> Good speaker. Quiet but forceful. >> >>

Mr. Brown >> Pleasant but unimaginative man who is baffled because Judy is now grown up and he doesn’t quite know how to treat her. Means well but lacks understanding. >> >>
