This past weekend we watched "American Beauty" and found it to be funny, interesting, and unpredictable. Not going to give any spoilers but I found this to be enjoyable and even insightful in the closing dialog and message.
"Lester Burnham, a depressed suburban father in a mid-life crisis, decides to turn his hectic life around after developing an infatuation for his daughter's attractive friend."
Director: Sam Mendes
I've thought of watching American Beauty, but thought it might aggravate my depression. However, if it's funny....
Not corny at all Sean. Thanks for sharing. I could definitely see how this movie would influence one to stop allowing others to control their lives, and start living instead for one's own self, an authentic life even. I liked his posthumous epilog at the end too.
