I’ve said this to my friend once, they SHOULD make a movie from Summer’s perspective. It’s cool to see a movie from the perspective of a guy who falls in love with a girl, gets heartbroken, feels devastated, eventually bounces back on Life.
But it would even be more interesting to see it from a perspective of a girl who wasn’t as sure with their ‘romance’ as the guy. Tom had unrealistic expectation on his ‘romance’ but Summer had not much expectation and just went with the flow. From Tom’s POV, her carefree and independent personality was part of her appeal but it’s also her flaw because it showed that she’s indecisive as well (which combined with a hopeless romantic Tom creates a recipe for disaster).
So I would want to see a story about a girl who takes a chance with a guy who likes her, slowly feels ‘out of touch’ with the ‘relationship’ that she half blindly leaped into to begin with (exacerbated by Tom’s expectations), calls for a breakup and lose a sense of direction in life, finds a new job and matures, finds a guy and have a healthy mature relationship, gets engaged.
