Storyboard Description

From the moment Amelia sets eyes on Chris, she is a goner. Lost. Sunk. Head over heels infatuated with him. It's problematic, since Chris, 21, is a sophisticated university student, while Amelia, 15, is 15. Amelia isn't stupid. She knows it's not gonna happen. So she plays it cool around Chris—at least, as cool as she can. Working checkout together at the local supermarket, they strike up a friendship: swapping life stories, bantering about everything from classic books to B movies, and cataloging the many injustices of growing up. As time goes on, Amelia's crush doesn't seem so one-sided anymore. But if Chris likes her back, what then? Can two people in such different places in life really be together?

  • And what's that?
  • Yeah. But you know, I've worked out what's really to blame for my mother's lot in life.
  • Feminism
  • My conversations with Amelia have sparked off some kind of change in my thinking. For the first time I'm curious about Mum's experiences, along suspiciously Amelia-ish lines.
