Description of Judy (The Tramp)
In addition to acting depressed, she also seems very needy. Something that I saw that had me start thinking this way is when she tried to kiss her Dad and threw a huge fit because he denied her. Judy, also lives her life in the way that seems like she will do absolutely anything to get attention from her parents or the law. I saw this trait come off right away at the beginning for the movie when she got arrested and just the things she said to the police. Another example is how she fell in love with the character Jim Stark so fast right after her boyfriend, Buzz, had died so tragically.
The character Judy has many wonderful traits so don't perceive me the wrong way. But, what I mainly saw come out of her were bad traits. A bad trait that really stuck out to me was how dramatic she is. The way she stomped out after her Father denied her a simple kiss was very unneeded. It also helped to prove my previous point that she will do anything for attention. Judy would also make everything a bigger deal than it already was. Evidence of this trait is also how she was in love after one day like I said before.

How Judy Changed
I think that Jim helps Plato in the end because he pities him for feeling so alone and he knows that he feels the most alone now so Jim wants to be there to make Plato feel comforted. I think that Jim is just that caring of a person to be honest. If I were in Jim's position I would most likely follow Plato through the woods but once we would arrive at the observatory with all of the police and the guns I would not go in because I would not risk my life for someone that I had only just met that day, even if I pitied them
