Lee Ann

Character Analysis

Lee Ann is Remi’s girlfriend who is really concerned about money. Sal reveals that she’s only with Remi because she thought Remi was rich, and fights with him all the time for not having enough money. However, she herself perpetuates the problem, going out with Remi on the weekends and blowing everything they’ve earned during the week. Sal is briefly interested in her, but isn't willing to act on it out of loyalty to Remi. Also, he already took Remi’s girl once, and there are only so many times you can screw over your friend like that.
