Author: Sosiologian laitos; Department of Sociology; Sociologiska institutionen
Abstract: American Beauty (1999, USA) by Sam Mendes Main Cast: Kevin Spacey; Annette Bening; Company: Dream Works The movie tells the story of Lester Burnham, who is in a midlife crisis. He quits his job, start to workout and smokes pot. In the end he got killed because of a misunderstanding. Scene: drugs male adults adolescent or children cannabis Transgressive in company 0:36:55-0:38:55: marihuana In this scene, we can see Lester and Rickie (the new neighbours' teenager) are smoking marihuana. As Rickie has a catering job, his boss comes out and wants Rickie to come back to work. Rickie just quits, which makes him Lester's hero. After a while Carolyn (Lester's wife) comes out and calls Lester to leave. Lester wants to introduce Rickie, but just starts to laugh without control.

This scene looks more like Lester and Rickie having a good time, than two addicts consuming drugs together. On the other side Lester cannot control himself anymore as an effect of the drug. Clip: 61A (Addictions 1)
