Great Characters: Sarah Pierce

Anxiety pushes us to do unpredictable things. But even moreso are the people it pushes to do things outside of their everyday, rigid schedule. In the case of Sarah Pierce, the longing for a life outside of the one in which she is trapped with a man who cruises porno sites. She is both excruciatingly alive and encaged. The 'hunger for an alternative' only takes her so far until it causes small but distinct disruptions in the lives of another couple, Brad & Kathy. If not for this, the mere fact of her rebellion against a life of unhappiness is what places her as a great character. Or as she would put it, Sarah Pierce was one who chose to struggle.
