So you can scratch it off your huge list of “Movies Heather Needs To See”. :>
I really, really enjoyed the movie. It was tragic, yet life-affirming. It made me really want to, as the tagline goes, “look closer”.
Everyone, I highly recommend American Beauty.
About the only thing I don’t like about it is the title.
I may do some sort of review later, when I’ve had more time to digest it. Maybe after I’ve watched it again. For now, though, I know Sam hasn’t seen it, and I don’t want to spoil it for him or for anyone else.
So, your homework, children, is to rent American Beauty. Sound off when you’ve watched it ;D
