A hotel penthouse, a professional photo of herself dressed only in rose petals Lesley Heague was sure her boyfriend would be bowled over by her recreation of the classic scene from American Beauty, his favourite film. In fact, Luke Scrase's favourite film is Denzel Washington's crime thriller American Gangster - a movie with a rather less romantic slant. All her plans had been based on a simple mishearing.

American Beauty is a American drama film written by Alan Ball and directed by Sam Mendes , in his feature directorial debut. Kevin Spacey stars as Lester Burnham, an advertising executive who has a midlife crisis when he becomes infatuated with his teenage daughter's best friend, played by Mena Suvari. Academics have described the film as a satire of American middle-class notions of beauty and personal satisfaction; further analysis has focused on the film's explorations of romantic and paternal love, sexuality, materialism, self-liberation, and redemption. Ball began writing American Beauty as a play in the early s, partly inspired by the media circus that accompanied the Amy Fisher trial in He shelved the play after realizing the story would not work on stage. After several years as a television screenwriter, Ball revived the idea in when attempting to break into the film industry. The rewritten script had a cynical outlook influenced by Ball's frustrating tenures writing for several sitcoms. American Beauty marked acclaimed theater director Mendes' film debut; courted after his successful productions of the musicals Oliver! Spacey was Mendes' first choice for the role of Lester, though DreamWorks urged him to consider better-known actors.
