Character Development: Speak
This storyboard does not have a description.
"It is easier not to say anything ...nobody really cares what you have to say"
"I called the cops at the party because I was raped."
"You've been through a lot haven't you?"
"Let me tell you all about it"
Melinda starts out with a secret. She won't talk to anyone and it is eating her up inside. This develops the theme of communication.
Melinda finally takes action and tells her friend Rachel that she was raped. Although Rachel doesn't believe her, this sets the plot in motion and helps Melinda realize it wasn't her fault.
After Melinda learns there are other girls and eventually confronts Andy and tells him "NO!", she is finally able to heal. She is a complex character because she grows and learns to express her feelings.
