American Beauty ()

Probable Score
Not Enough Info
Your Rating

Provoked by forbidden passions, Lester Burnham (Spacey) decides to make a few changes in his rut of a life, changes that are less midlife crisis than adolescence reborn. The freer he gets, the happier he gets, which is even more maddening to his wife, Carolyn (Bening), and daughter Jane (Birch) --especially when he turns his lustful gaze toward Jane's friend, the sultry Angela (Suvari). (Dreamworks SKG)

A tasteful mouthful of creepiness with a beautiful script and amazing acting. American Beauty is delightful drama which excels at character development. Almost every character in the film could be called a parody of the average american, nevertheless the film takes this concept and surprise you at every corner. The soundtrack submerge you into the sanity and reasoning of the main character while the acting from Spacey leaves you satisfied when you pick the undertones he implies through the film.
