2. Trapped/weak- Judy is trapped by conformity within her peers. She is not showing individuality, she is conforming to the actions of her peers. Judy deep down is not the sort of person who friends are, but she is too weak to stand up for herself and do what she thinks is right, and truly be an individual. Not until Buzz dies, does she really realize that she can be herself and disengage herself from her unruly peers.
Rank the three rebels in order of most to least disturbed and justify your answer
2. Judy- Judy changed a lot in from beginning to end, she may have not been the most disturbed in the beginning but she is certainly in a better place now. She learned a lot from her mistakes and is now making better decisions and hanging around better people. However I ranked her as more disturbed than Jim, because no matter how much she's changed for the better since the beginning, her parents were still not a part of her life in the end of the movie. Jim and even Plato's family members were out looking for them that night, but Judy's parents never even noticed she was gone, so she still does have a very dysfunction, disturbed home life.
3. Jim- Jim in the beginning was a lot more disturbed than Judy, but he grew a lot through the movie, making him the less disturbed In the end, he really had convinced his parents to stay for once and not move, and really have a great home life. In the end Jim wound up with Judy, exactly what he needed, he needed a sincere friend to love him, someone to talk to and make him feel welcome in town. Now that he has Judy and his parents by his side, he is definitely the least disturbed rebel.
