"My absolutely favourite movie ever. Dystopia in the USA"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I've seen this movie over and over. The DVD let's you watch the whole movie with a voiceover from Sam Mendes, director and the producer (I think). Fascinating insights into what is just a complete 5 star movie

"Captures Different Teenagers"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This film is really good. It captures the different aspects of teenagers and also families. After watching this movie you know why it won best picutre. I personally went on a serach for this movie after the first time I saw it because it was a movie I wanted to own and be able to watch over and over again. American Beauty is truly AMAZING!

Description

American Beauty (Academy Gold Collection)

Look closer at the most acclaimed cast of the year led by brilliant performances from Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening as the indelible Lester and Carolyn Burnham, a seemingly ordinary couple in an anonymous suburban neighborhood whose marriage – and lives – are slowly unraveling.

From beginning to startling end, American Beauty has been deemed a “flat-out masterpiece”.

Accolades:

  • Best Picture Oscar Winner 1999.
  • Best Picture BAFTA Winner 1999.
  • Best Picture (Drama) Golden Globe Winner 1999.

Critic Reviews:

  • " American Beauty is deeply disturbing, acerbically funny, brilliantly acted, breathtakingly original and highly sophisticated. " – Paul Clinton (CNN.com)
  • " This is Spacey's best performance since he took home an Oscar for The Usual Suspects. " – Jeff Strickler
  • " It's a love story, a tale of redemption, a drama of unraveling lifestyles and psychological corrosion, and a poetic tragedy, all wrapped up together. " – Mike Massie
