In other words, despite her repeated attempts to expect the world, she finds herself within a deeper hole -yet, she is smart enough to consider what comes with reaching rock bottom. Love breaks the wings of a butterfly on a wheel; yet, a wheel is round, which has no end. Although every action has an equal and opposite reaction, love is never-ending. In order to become the very best -in order to achieve the very best -perhaps a person must face so many stormy nights, if he or she would like to arise to the highest level -that of paradise.
His wife, Carolyn, is an ambitious real estate broker; their sixteen-year-old daughter, Jane, abhors her parents and has low self-esteem. The Fitts' teenage son, Ricky, obsessively films his surroundings with a camcorder, collecting hundreds of recordings on video tapes in his bedroom, and uses his part-time job of a social events waiter as a front for his secret marijuana dealings.
Frank is a strict disciplinarian who previously forced Ricky into a military academy and briefly committed him to a psychiatric hospital.

Fitts later reveals his homophobia when angrily discussing the incident with Ricky. Lester becomes infatuated with Jane's vain cheerleader friend, Angela Hayes, after seeing her perform a half-time dance routine at a high school basketball game.
He starts having sexual fantasies about Angela, in which red rose petals are a recurring motif. Carolyn begins an affair with a married business rival, Buddy Kane. Lester is told he is being laid off, but instead blackmails his boss, Brad, for one year's salary plus benefits.
He continues his liberation by taking up employment at a fast-food outlet, purchasing his dream car and doing physical workout after he overhears Angela telling Jane that she would find him sexually attractive if he improved his physique. He begins smoking marijuana supplied by Ricky, and flirts with Angela whenever she visits Jane.
The girls' friendship wanes after Jane starts a relationship with Ricky; they bond over what Ricky considers the most beautiful imagery he has ever filmed: Lester discovers Carolyn's infidelity, but reacts indifferently. Buddy ends the affair, fearing an expensive divorce.
Frank becomes suspicious of Lester and Ricky's friendship and later finds his son's footage of a nude Lester lifting weights, which Ricky captured by chance. After watching Ricky and Lester through Lester's garage window, Frank mistakenly concludes they are sexually involved.

Angela goes to the bathroom and Lester smiles at a family photograph in his kitchen before being shot by an unseen intruder.
Ricky and Jane find Lester's body, while Carolyn is seen crying in the closet. A bloodied Frank returns home, where a gun is missing from his collection.
Lester's closing narration describes meaningful experiences during his life; he says that, despite his death, he is happy because there is so much beauty in the world. Themes and analysis[ edit ] Multiple interpretations[ edit ] Scholars and academics have offered many possible readings of American Beauty; film critics are similarly divided, not so much about the quality of the film, as their interpretations of it.
Mendes is indecisive, saying the script seemed to be about something different each time he read it: It was funny; it was angry, sad.
Booth concludes that the film resists any one interpretation: It is more tempting to summarize it as 'a portrait of the beauty underlying American miseries and misdeeds', but that plays down the scenes of cruelty and horror, and Ball's disgust with our mores.
It cannot be summarized with either Lester or Ricky's philosophical statements about what life is or how one should live. According to Booth, the film's true controller is the creative energy "that hundreds of people put into its production, agreeing and disagreeing, inserting and cutting".
The monotony of Lester's existence is established through his gray, nondescript workplace and characterless clothing. He masturbates in the confines of his shower;  the shower stall evokes a jail cell and the shot is the first of many where Lester is confined behind bars or within frames,   such as when he is reflected behind columns of numbers on a computer monitor, "confined [and] nearly crossed out".Martin Luther - Hitler's Spiritual Ancestor by Peter F.

More than one interpretation (including the movie) has shown him bursting into maniacal laughter after seeing his disfigured reflection for the first time (depending on the interpretation, it was the result of falling into a chemical vat, getting shot in the face, or both).
