Default American Beauty

Has anyone seen it?

I swear, if any movie has ever changed my life, it would be American Beauty. I just watched it two nights ago, and I had to rewatch it three times. The message that movie portrays is just incredible... There'* beauty in everything. Every character in that movie is a symbol of different aspects of the world around us. Rebellion, Failure, Lust, self-obsession, conformity, it'* all there... Just amazing...

Besides the story, the acting is phenomenal. The actors are VERY well suited for their roles, even though few of them became big (sans Spacey and Cooper). Seriously, if you get a chance, rent it, buy it, borrow it, whatever. It really puts the world into perspective.

Yea, that movie is a nice one. It makes you look at things a bit differently.

I don't wanna give things away, but I will say watch it atleast twice to see what you might have missed or misunderstood.
