American Beauty (1999)
everyone wants to be different.
None wants to be ordinary. This is evident in the artsy indie film American Beauty directed by Sam Mendes and written by Alan Bell. This movie is about change. Liberation, and the desire to be accepted by the people that you know.
It can be taken as just a normal drama about the twisted ways of suburban living, the facade, but its really more than that. It has many insights about beauty and about embracing life that shouldn't be missed by the shallow eye. It keeps you interested with good pace and good cinematography.
Kevin Spacey was perfect. All of the actors gave excellent intense performances.
Recommended for the young adult audience, But anyone can enjoy it. There is a little bit of profanity and one scene of nudity, so keep the little kiddies away. They wouldn't understand it anyway.
This is one of my favorite movies.
Hey, this was better than expected. I thought that the idea was old (I remember the talking trains...) but Pixar came through. It is funny and has typical movie moments and dilemmas such as (SPOILER) the end where the main car has to make a choice to live life in the fast lane (pun intended) or to be happy in a small town with his friends. There's a little romance, too.
A lot of audiences will enjoy this movie. The old especially because there is a lot of reminiscence of "the old days" when the cars are fixing up the town. The young (including teens--me!) will like the humor.
All in all, this is a good way to spend 2 hours on a Saturday morning.
