What is the name of heroine of American beauty?

Though much of the story of 'American Beauty' revolves around Carolyn and Lester Burnham's less-than-perfect relationship, the true heroine of 'American Beauty' is the Burnham's daughter, Jane, played by Thora Birch. It is through her that all of the other characters are intertwined. Apart from Lester, it is, arguably, Jane who goes through the greatest transformation, turning from an insecure doormat to her narcissistic friend, Angela, to a determined, confident young woman.

What or who does American beauty refer to?

'American Beauty' most notably refers to the type of rose that grows in the Burnham's garden and is used as a motif throughout the film. Roses are seen throughout the Burnham home, the rose garden is Carolyn's chief hobby, and rose petals surround Angela in Lester's fantasies of her. It could be said that Angela represents Lester's version of the American Beauty in human form. In each fantasy scene, Angela co-exists with the rose, surrounded by rose petals when she appears as a dream on the ceiling, bathing in rose petals and even depositing a petal in Lester's mouth when he kisses her. In their real-life love scene he tells her "you are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen." In the deeper theme of the movie, the characters are searching for beauty within their everyday, ordinary lives. Lester eventually achieves the same perspective that young Ricky discovered much earlier. Ricky's description, "Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world, I feel like I can't take it. And my heart is just going to cave in" mirrors Lester's description at the end of the movie "…it's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst…. And I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life."


What is the first thing that Lester Burnham says in the beginning of the movie 'American Beauty'?

The inciting event in American beauty?

It was the possibility of sex with Angela that sparked a chain-reaction of other life-altering events where Lester started taking responsibility for his own happiness. "It's a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself." He had been in a self-described coma for the past 20 years, living 'sedated.' It was not until he met Angela and discovered the possibility of an affair with her that he set out to improve himself (initially with the goal of wanting to look good naked.)


What is the American dreams according to Lester in American Beauty?

In 'American Beauty', Kevin Spacey's character Lester Burnham never definitely describes what his version is of the American Dream. However, there are three scenes in the movie that indicate the times when he felt most satisfied: 1. "I flipped burgers all summer to buy an 8-track…. It was great. All I did was smoke pot and get laid." 2. "Today I quit my job and then I told my boss to go f*** himself and then I blackmailed him for almost $60000." 3. "1970 Pontiac Firebird. The car I've always wanted and now I have it. I rule!"
