American Beauty Film Review
I saw this film yesterday on television. I really liked this sad and mad movie. I was impressed with the way the story was narrated. I liked the acting of Mena Suvari in this film. The characters in this film are complex and it takes a while after watching this movie to fully understand the film. My heart melted in the climax in the scene when Mena Suvari accepts that she is a virgin saying "This is my first time". The finishing dialogue in the movie is also very good and thought provoking when Kevin dies and you can hear his mind saying "You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry, you will someday". This is not the kind of film where everything happens perfectly and the climax is matching the story. In real life nothing goes by the script. You never know what is in store for you. At times you need to accept the intricate journey of life and this film is a good example that human life is not a perfectly written script.
