American Beauty: The Shooting Script


"This is probably one of the first scripts I have done that didn't go through a rewrite. I believe Steven Spielberg read it on a Saturday night, and on Monday morning he said, 'Let's make this movie and not change a word.'" - Kevin Spacey - On a typical suburban street in a typical suburban town, there is an ordinary family living the American dream. But look closer. Lester Burnham's wife, Carolyn, regards him with contempt, his daughter, Jane, thinks he's a loser, and his boss is positioning him for the ax. Captivated by Jane's sultry high school friend Angela, Lester decides to make a few changes in his mere existence - changes that are less mid-life crisis than a life reclaimed. The freer he gets, the happier he gets, which is even more maddening to his wife and daughter. Complicating matters, Lester finds an unexpected ally in Ricky, the teenage son of the new next-door neighbors, who sees life through a camera lens that has lately focused on Jane Burnham. In pursuit of a new vision of the American dream, Lester is about to learn that the ultimate freedom comes at the ultimate price.
