George (Teenager/Young Adult)
Undergoes the main character arc of the film. He starts as a boy of little confidence, but becomes a man with too much. From embodiment of awkward and vulnerable but genuine, to the essence machismo, he’s a tragic character who must ultimately face himself.

Julia (Teenager/Young Adult)
Julia loves George. Adult Julia loves George a little while, but has her heart broken by him. She slowly accepts it, but quickly realises that she feels sorry for him. When he comes crawling back to her, she understands his sentiment but refuses to accept his olive branch. It’s a matter of too little, too late. She’s stronger than that.

Old George is sage man who imparts his wisdom on the audience and ultimately contextualises the lessons he learnt from his journey from love as a young man. He’s confident, and the kind of witty that only he thinks is funny. That said, he’s been on Earth for a long time now. He’s done things he’s not proud of and he remorsefully shares them with us. His words provide the comedy, but his silence is filled with regret.
