American Beauty

American Beauty is a picture that exposes predetermined ideas about living in suburban America. This movie also becomes an explanation on the human condition while revealing the raw truth of a dysfunctional family. The Burnhams Lester, Carolyn, and Jane establish as the usual middle-class American family. Lester works for a magazine and is not satisfied with his job. He later ends up quit the job and blackmailing his boss for sixty thousand dollars. Carolyn is an actual estate agent, who is eager for success. Their daughter, Jane, is a typical young person, who is unhappy with her life and her parents. The whole termination of their family begins upon the arrival of more than a few new elements that shake up the whole family. This element being their neighbors.
Their next-door neighbors are a gay pair and the Fitts'. Frank Fitts is an aquatic Corps Colonel who suppresses his homosexuality and his relations. He thought of love for Angela because he thinks she is the whole thing that is missing in his life.
