One you’ve seen before.
There have been several great moments in cinema, films that mark these occasions are usually epic but not in the way you would think. These films are epic in their appeal not their size or budget, American Beauty is one great example. This film is quiet in its approach to some fairly bug issues, the main one of course being modern Family living, albeit in an American setting. The rat race has made the father catatonic distancing him from a mother who has all but disowned him and a daughter crying for some sane conversation at the dinner table.
American Beauty is just as the title describes; a Beautiful film about taking every moment and not regretting a thing. It’s and incredibly thought provoking film that develops ideas about prejudice, youth and sex very few films can claim that.
