I believe it is in this time period. All I know, is it's about teens and a particular boy, who is a jock and hangs with the "popular" crowd. He is in a car accident that changes his life and decides to be who he really is and not how others want him to be. This girl character is his crush and symbolizes who he wants to be. It states that she is sort of funky (I'm guessing not too funky though) and is apathetic towards those she doesn't like. It mentions another girl in the character descriptions, who is tall and beautiful, which is what he is expected to like, but not what he actually likes. The charater my daughter is going for is short and cute. Not sure if this helps. I am thinking that instead of the cheerleader type, this character would be more of the musician type? It is a local film, BTW.
