American Beauty – Lester gets serious
American Beauty is one of those movies that I probably wouldn’t have watched unless someone suggested it but I’m glad I did. It instantly became one of my favorites. Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening were superb. This is the dinner scene where Lester tells his wife that he has quit his job. It’s actually a very funny scene because the acting was so great. Lester is calm and collected while Carolyn is a rambling nutcase all the while their daughter is caught in the middle. Enjoy.
