Storyline Heading

Provoked by forbidden passions, Lester decides to make a few changes in his life that are less mid-life crisis than adolescence reborn. The freer he gets, the happier he gets, which is even more maddening to his wife and daughter. But Lester Burnham is about to learn that the ultimate freedom comes at the ultimate price.

Critic's Review Heading
Excellent
American Beauty is being sold as--and, to a large degree, is--a dark comedy, and a wildly funny and unpredictable one at that. But for all the surprises in celebrated stage director Sam Mendes's unique, indescribable first film, the richest is how cathartic it is for the audience. Instead of being a distraction, all the emotional baggage that one carries into American Beauty serves as an enhancement--and as such, the film resonates in unexpectedly strong ways.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Lester Burnham's (Kevin Spacey) wife Carolyn (Annette Bening) hates him, his daughter Jane (Thora Birch) regards him with contempt, and his boss is positioning him for the ax - the typical suburban nightmare.

When you've got nothing to lose, you might as well risk everything.

Provoked by forbidden passions, Lester decides to make a few changes in his life that are less mid-life crisis than adolescence reborn. The freer he gets, the happier he gets, which is even more maddening to his wife and daughter. But Lester Burnham is about to learn that the ultimate freedom comes at the ultimate price.
