AMERICAN BEAUTY tells the story of Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey), a suburban father who snaps when he becomes disgusted with his stale, repetitive existence. Burnham lets us know in voice-over from the film's opening that this is the day he dies (using the SUNSET BOULEVARD flashback approach), a technique that adds an inevitable tension to the proceedings and keeps the story moving forward at all times. On a whim, Lester quits his job and begins a regression into young adulthood, lifting weights, smoking pot, doing nothing, and discovering the overflowing sexuality of his 16-year-old daughter's best friend, Angela (Mena Suvari). His wife, Carolyn (Annette Bening), has her own midlife crisis of sorts. A real estate agent, she experiences a youthful awakening when super-agent Buddy Kane (Peter Gallagher) seduces her repeatedly. Meanwhile, Jane (Thora Birch), the Burnhams' daughter, is pursued by Ricky (Wes Bentley), the mysterious boy next door who carries a video camera around with him at all times. When Ricky's militaristic father, Colonel Fitts (Chris Cooper), discovers something potentially horrifying on one of his tapes, and when Carolyn's rage for Lester's actions boils over, the time bomb finally explodes.

good spot. class film. heat:thumbsup:

Mena Suvari :thumbsup:

This has been the highlight of my day!

Absolutely superb film, one of my favourites of all time. Buy it but it buy it.

HOT HOT HOT!

One of the worst films ever in this history of the universe. Follows the typical trend of oscar winners.

You gotta be black, or raped, or broken in one way or another to win.

I ought to invest into a movie starring a person of color, who happens to be gay, is raped all the time, and starts to murder people as a result of their drug habit. Ought to have oscars rolling in front, left and centre.

I think you just like to go against the grain! Everytime everyone has similar views you like to go completely the opposite way, maybe you don't like it but definitley not the worst film ever made... have you ever seen the hottie and the nottie? Maybe its just that you dont watch many movies.

...attention seeking is fine but please do it somewhere else!

Great film. heat added! :thumbsup:

Bizarre film, but brilliant. Plastic bag tornado ftw!

Ok, I am genuinely not trying to have an argument with you and this is perfectly civil.

First of all, you are right. I do normally tend to dislike things which most people do. Rap. Hip Hop. X factor et al.

Secondly, Attention seeking would be trying to go along with everyone else and then over accentuating it, to stand out.

Thirdly, there is nothing wrong with not liking a lot of things many others would. It's called individuality, and personal opinion.

I could not care less if no one notices me on here. Yet there are people who completely agree with me at times, and I do know some preety awesome people from on here. Then there are folks like yourself who do not agree with me and like to pass me off as an "attention seeker".

I think that is only because labelling someone as a voyeur, allows you to hold your nose upto them. I think you do it to feel like you know everyone and everything's motive. It gives you a sense of being "in-the-know". Well if it works for you then more power. However please do try to realise that some people just simply genuinely do NOT follow the herd.

Thank you.

American Beauty is a great film.

But Madonnaproject's film sounds good too. Maybe it will get Will Smith an Oscar?

Superb film, with an ending I never expected

It's quite plain to see that you've never even watched this film. You are just trolling. And I thought kids had returned to school today !
