A Character Guide to Sweet Bird of Youth

In Sweet Bird of Youth, 29-year-old Chance Wayne returns to his hometown—a sleepy Gulf Coast hamlet known as St. Cloud—to win back his girl, Heavenly. But once there, he is forced to confront the mistakes of his past and the people from his hometown that won’t let him forget. To keep all the names and faces from Chance’s past straight, we’ve compiled a guide to the residents—and visitors—of St. Cloud that Chance encounters on that day in 1959.
