Role Description

Liam: (Lead) has been dating his girlfriend Sally for two years and the nine-year age difference has never been a concern to either of them; as the story progresses, he proposes to her and they get married; a salesman for a small tech company, he has a big heart, loves his work and making his clients happy, but has a tendency to get wrapped up in what he's doing and forget his other responsibilities; although he doesn't like to spend a lot of time on his appearance, he's learned to dress just nicely enough to be taken seriously at work; has a great, although often corny, sense of humor and loves to make light of things, often preferring to leave uncomfortable situations rather than finishing a fight or difficult conversation.

LIAM #1 - INT. MIDDLE SCHOOL CLASSROOM – LATE AFTERNOON

Sally hangs the last few pieces of a new “welcome back to school” mural on her classroom bulletin board. Her boyfriend LIAM, 36, dressed in a tuxedo, waits off to one side for her to finish. Sally holds up several pieces of construction paper cut to look like various figures and objects as she eyes how to arrange them on the board. Liam¬ holds additional shapes in one hand and a stapler at the ready in the other. On a student desk nearby and spread out on the floor by Sally’s feet are supplies of construction paper, glue, cotton balls, and markers of various sizes. In the background by the students’ cubbies hangs a clear plastic garment bag with an evening gown inside. The classroom is brightly decorated with posters and student artwork. Next to the bulletin board hangs a September calendar, a five-day weather forecast, and all of the students’ names listed in a “classroom helper” chart. Sally’s desk sits in one corner covered in quirky toys and knickknacks, half-finished crafts, and gifts from students, along with a small pile of jewelry for tonight.

LIAM #2 - INT. CAFÉ – MORNING

Marc sits at his usual table along the wall sketching in his notebook. On the table are a pot of tea and an empty bowl flecked with dried bits of oatmeal. He lifts his pen and pauses to turn toward Sally sitting alone at the next table over with her back to him as she quietly cries, but his gaze has dropped to the scarf on the floor behind her chair, fallen from the corner where her purse still hangs. Several customers in the café steal curious and embarrassed glances as she wrings her hands in her lap and strains to maintain her composure. In addition to her cup of coffee, another cup and a barely-eaten Danish sit across the table at an empty seat. Out of focus but visible in the background Liam hurries out of the café.

LIAM #3 - EXT. BACKYARD OF SALLY’S APARTMENT – DUSK

Liam and Sally stand in a darkened corner of the yard. Liam holds a large, two-tier circular cake out for Sally as she finishes lighting the 30-ish candles on top. Liam looks affectionately at her and the way the soft glow of the candles beautifully illuminate her face. Behind them Marc is having a good time as he dances with a few of Sally’s friends including Rose, Hannah, and their friend ZACH, 20, while Margaret playfully grinds against Derek. Phil has cornered Cheryl over by the food table as she fixes herself a drink and Cheryl smiles demurely as Phil whispers seductively in her ear. Avoiding the dance floor, Clarence, DAN, 32, and some of Liam’s other friends stand off to one side engrossed in a lively discussion.

LIAM #4 - INT. LIAM’S APARTMENT – LIVING ROOM – NIGHT

Sally and Liam sit on the floor leaning against the couch in front of his coffee table. Sally has dressed down since teaching and her hair is casually pulled back in a loose, messy bun. Liam’s blazer is draped over the arm of the couch, the top button of his shirt open, his tie loosened and sleeves rolled up. He has his arm around Sally as she applies a sticker to the top paper in a stack of math worksheets from her third graders. On the table are the remains of their dinner, a few unfinished bites of thin-crust pizza, nearly empty wine glasses, and cloth napkins, as well as a bouquet of fresh flowers and an open velvet necklace box. The jewelry box is empty, but Sally is wearing a simple sapphire necklace. A beautiful hardbound book, with a card tucked into its pages, lies open on Liam’s lap and next to him a carefully removed and folded pile of hand-decorated wrapping paper. Above the couch hangs a large vintage map. Several lamps bathe the room in soft, warm light.
