AMERICAN BEAUTY tells the
story of Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey), a suburban father who snaps when he
becomes disgusted with his stale, repetitive existence. Burnham lets us know in
voice-over from the film's opening that this is the day he dies (using the
SUNSET BOULEVARD flashback approach), a technique that adds an inevitable
tension to the proceedings and keeps the story moving forward at all times. On a
whim, Lester quits his job and begins a regression into young adulthood, lifting
weights, smoking pot, doing nothing, and discovering the overflowing sexuality
of his 16-year-old daughter's best friend, Angela (Mena Suvari). His wife,
Carolyn (Annette Bening), has her own midlife crisis of sorts. A real estate
agent, she experiences a youthful awakening when super-agent Buddy Kane (Peter
Gallagher) seduces her repeatedly. Meanwhile, Jane (Thora Birch), the Burnhams'
daughter, is pursued by Ricky (Wes Bentley), the mysterious boy next door who
carries a video camera around with him at all times. When Ricky's militaristic
father, Colonel Fitts (Chris Cooper), discovers something potentially horrifying
on one of his tapes, and when Carolyn's rage for Lester's actions boils over,
the time bomb finally explodes.
