Finnegan confronts Amelia in front of her last serious boyfriend when everyone in the room discovers she has been hiding secrets. Through the unraveling of the "who is Amelia" investigation the screenplay being written between Finnegan and Amelia gets forgotten about. Or does it? Amelia ends up homeless and abandoned by everyone she ultimately alienated in her life because of her deceit. Finnegan is heartbroken and gives up on the screenplay. Finnegan's literary agent congratulates him on his completed screenplay; mysteriously submitted on his behalf but we aren't sure how, or WHO, actually wrote it! Did Finn write it or Amelia? Was their relationship just made up as part of the screenplay plot; written right before our eyes? The movie ends with Finnegan passing a homeless Amelia on the street, in front of a bookstore, where his new book and movie title is on display in the window behind her. The newspaper article with the 30 intimate questions in it is laying beside the homeless Amelia.
