British director Sam Mendes and Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball peel the paint off the picket fences of suburban America with this Oscar-winning satire. Kevin Spacey was crowned Best Actor for his portrayal of a working stiff pushed into mid-life crisis by wife Annette Bening's adultery and his obsession with his daughter's best friend (Mena Suvari). As horny and thorny as a girl in a bath full of roses, this is a work of astonishing wit and wonder.
