Overview: SEHEN SIE GENAU HIN …

… und erleben Sie American Beauty wie nie zuvor. In seinem Regiedebüt entfaltet Oscar®-Gewinner Sam Mendes zusammen mit dem Autor und Oscar®-Gewinner Alan Ball ein dunkles, intelligentes und wahrhaftiges Porträt der Vorstädte. Von über 65 Kritikern als bester Film des Jahres bewertet und mit fünf Oscars®* ausgezeichnet, darunter Bester Film, präsentiert American Beauty die Stars Kevin Spacey und Annette Benings als Lester und Carolyn Burnham: ein anscheinend ganz gewöhnliches Paar, dessen sie auflösende Ehe einen Sturm der Veränderung in der perfekten Nachbarschaft entfacht. Beide werden unterstützt von einer hervorragenden Riege an Nebendarstellern.
