American Beauty (1999)
Director: Sam Mendes (Skyfall, Specter)
This movie has a plot in which, Lester's life seems perfect, having a respectable job and a family. But inside, he is slowly slipping into depression. Struggling with life, he gets infatuated to his daughter's friend, Angela.
This is really extraordinary film with having great storyline, this film is not only entertains you but also drops subtle questions in your head about the nature of human behavior and the gulf between fantasy and reality, movie also spells out the social disillusionment phenomenon everyone experiences. Direction is damn awesome, with cool cinematography. Sam Mende's debut movie is one of the greatest I've seen. Not only is it entertaining but it is also filled with interesting ideas. Casting is perfect, all the actors have done beautiful acting. And specially Kevin Spacey is having spectacular performance and he has won Oscar for the best actor with this movie. This movie also has won another 4 Oscars including best film and best direction. Every characters in movie are very good and a part of each of us, It's an important film for society because there's so much society needs to learn. Music is perfect, it makes you to feel the whole movie easily. I listened to the message of American Beauty - look closely and you can find Beauty in anything, and it is able to change your life.
Overall, This is the most beautiful movie I have ever seen. I really appreciate this film, it is filled with great concept and some serious issues. Movie has everything to entertain you, and also has many things to teach you. You can go for it for sure.
