The storyline of “Being Thomas” revolves around a father-less teenager, who robs a house to boost his self-esteem. The story takes a turn, when the owner of the house, who is an old man suffering from dementia, welcomes Thomas as his estranged son. Thomas plans to play along, but in this emotional journey, the feelings of the old man transform this delinquent perpetrator.
Auditions are being held for the following main leads:
- Aged 18-25
- Height 5-5’11 ft
- Someone from a White or Hispanic background
Description of the character:
The character faces serious a lack of confidence, as he is seen portraying someone who is tough, but his boyish face betrays him every time. He is unlike anyone his age and his eyes reflect an innate fear, which is the result of his tendency to initiate chaos in a split second if he feels concerned or is provoked by someone. Although, throughout the movie, he is not seen scaring anyone by acting tough.
The kid is seen residing in the same house where his father left him. His mother is proud of his grades, considering how little contribution she has in his life. It is due to the lack of any male role model in his life that the kid directs himself to the path of wickedness. Although he does not want to let his mother down, but he also does not want to ask for her approval.
The Old Man
- Aged between 60 to 70 years
- Height 5-5’10 ft
- Someone from White or Hispanic background
Description of the character:
It is certain that the old man was strong when he was young, but there is no doubt about the fact that age has worn him down immensely. His eyes are tender, which do not go with his tough looks. Throughout his life, the man has worked in a blue-collar industry and led a respectable life. He has spent his year with strict ethics, self-discipline and curiosity, which has endowed wisdom upon his soul.
The old man is suffering from the early on-set of dementia and resides alone in the big house. 20 years ago, after the death of his wife, the old man became uninvolved in his son Thomas’s life. Although his son supports and helps his father even now, his father’s attitude had become unbearable for him, which was why he left the house. The thought that his son is alive somewhere is now killing the old man, so when he thinks that his son has returned to him, he wants to take every measure to make him stay and make things right.
