Producer: Anthony Mastromauro, Judd Payne, Matt Williams
LUCY DIAMOND CAUCASIAN. 16 (PREFER LEGAL 18 TO PLAY 16) Whip smart and with the perceptive observer’s outlook of an only child and a wry sense of humor, Lucy is our protagonist. Despite, Lucy’s maturity, she cherishes a desire for the normal family that hers can only occasionally resemble. Lucy is just finding out, mostly to her dismay, how attractive she is, despite the close-cropped hairdo her father has imposed on her all her life. And along with being noticed, she is awkwardly and occasionally recklessly starting to explore the power and desire of her own sexuality. Importantly, she has a private and passionate devotion to cooking, the presentation of food and an imaginary relationship with Mario Batali that nurtures her and keeps her in touch with a brighter vision of the future. The course of the movie for her is in learning that she finally must be the one to take care of herself and developing the confidence that she is up to the task. LEAD. SHOULD BE A GOOD PHYSICAL MATCH FOR CLAIRE DANES.
KENNY CRAUDER CAUCASIAN. 16 (PREFER LEGAL 18 TO PLAY 16) Skinny, a bit of a misfit, with short hair, wearing jeans and a t-shirt, Kenny is Lucy’s best friend in Great Falls, Montana. They’ve been buddies ever since kindergarten, and everyone in their community is used to them being together. A smart, well-spoken, thoughtful kid who’s a devotee of Buddhist philosophy, Kenny is inching towards a love affair with Lucy, and vice versa– but they’re so quiet about it that neither knows what’s going on between them until something…explodes. Abruptly inflamed with an urge to neck with Lucy on pretty much every occasion, Kenny has a hormone eruption that annihilates his Buddhist rejection of passing worldly pleasures. Once the parents of Kenny and Lucy find out what’s going on, Kenny is exiled to another town in Montana–but his steady stream of postcards sent to Lucy all let her know that his respectful love for her is untouched by distance or the pain of separation…LEAD
