American Beauty

A portrait of an angst-ridden all-American family. Hubby hates his job, wife and daughter belittle him, and he harbors a self-hate. The wife is a Realtor attempting to find happiness through possessions, self-help tapes, and an affair. Their daughter is, well, like every other movie teenager: Smart beyond her years, yet as cynical and dark as Wednesday Addams.

Sex

Profanity and obscenity throughout; sexual situations, including two graphic masturbation scenes, the camera leeringly focusing on a teenage girl, explicit and often crude sexual conversations; nudity, including teen characters; a gay lifestyle is represented; smoking, drinking and pot use by both teens and adults; adultery; a repressed military officer – is there any other kind in a Hollywood movie? - beats his son; a fatal shooting and its bloody aftermath is pictured; film mocks conservative viewpoints; the teen protagonist is a successful drug pusher; the husband lusts over his daughter’s underage best friend; a teen girl keeps recounting her sexual activities; the film is completely populated by spiritually bankrupt characters – I mean, these people could give Tennessee Williams the heebie-jeebies.
