American Beauty (1999)

Title: American Beauty
Released: 1999
Genre: Drama
Runtime: 122 min
Country: USA
Language: English

Tagline: ... look closer

Plot Summary: Lester and Carolyn Burnham are on the outside, a perfect husband and wife, in a perfect house, in a perfect neighborhood. But inside, Lester is slipping deeper and deeper into a hopeless depression. He finally snaps when he becomes infatuated with one of his daughters friends. Meanwhile, his daughter Jane is developing a happy friendship with a shy boy-next-door named Ricky who lives with a homophobic father.

Comments: Unforgettable. American Beauty may (and should) go down as the most unparrallelled movie of its time. This movie, which could not be more difficult to explain to one who hasn't seen it, grapples the viewer from the first instance. This film succeeds not only because of the unbelievable script, but because the fact that when the film ends, you DO acknowledge the performances of the film (Benning is unbelievable), but seem to put individual performances aside to the movie itself. Few movies place you in the surreal-yet-too-real environment that this film seems to put you in. Watching this movie, you will become immersed in this family and what occurs to them, despite the fact that they seem to be the most ordinary family a mind could imagine. Whether or not Spacey deserved the Oscar should be irrelevent - the story behind this movie should be remembered for ages.

Personal quotes

"It's nice when people want your autograph, but it's a little strange because I never expected it. I still kind of think, 'Oh, who am I?'"

"Sometimes I don't feel like the person that I'm supposed to be. I don't feel like I deserve any of this."

"Though I've turned 21, I don't drink. I'm an old hag now. I'm just an old fart."

"For me, I guess it was a just little different. I moved around a lot in my life. And usually you tend to form the relationships in middle school and high school - and I didn't really have that. I moved out to L.A. "

"You know, one example, when we had the earthquake out here [in Los Angeles] I was teased. People would say, "Did your chickens get loose?" 'cause I lived in South Carolina. You know, just things like that."

"I like . fashion! No. I like anything fashion oriented. But I don't think I really had any drastic change."

" I like sports. I like to keep active. I like hiking and things like that, and horse back riding. But shopping . that's my exercise. Open the door, carry the bags... I'm really bad."

"I make all kinds of stuff. I got my fingers in everything."

"I just don't feel like who I'm suppose to be, so I don't think about that too much."

"I don't feel like the person that I should be, like I'm Mena, you know? I can't take it too seriously - I just have fun with it."
