Lost In Translation

October 2003101 minutes

Kaksi toisilleen vierasta ihmistä tapaa Tokiossa. Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) on Tokiossa kiireisen valokuvaajamiehensä Johnin (Giovanni Ribisi) kanssa. John ei osoita paljoakaan kiinnostusta vaimoaan kohtaan, ja Charlotte viettää suurimman osan ajastaan yksin hotellissa. Siellä hän tapaa näyttelijä Bob Harrisin (Bill Murray), joka on Tokiossa tekemässä viskimainosta. Bob on tehnyt erityisen tuottoisan sopimuksen, mutta hän on uupunut ja kyllästynyt koko tilanteeseen - samoin kuin vaimoonsa. Vaimo soittaa Bobille Los Angelesista useita kertoja päivässä kuullakseen Bobin mielipiteen heidän talonsa sisustuksesta. Tyhjyyden tunne painostaa, mutta Charlotten ja Bobin välille syntyy yhtäkkinen yhteenkuuluvuuden tunne keskellä vierasta maailmaa. Yhdessä he tutustuvat Tokioon ja japanilaisten karaoke mieltymykseen ja yllättäen he löytävät olemassaololle syvemmän merkityksen kuin ennen.

Noted theater director Sam Mendes, who was responsible for the acclaimed 1998 revival of Cabaret and Nicole Kidman's turn in The Blue Room, made his motion picture debut with this film about the dark side of an American family, and about the nature and price of beauty in a culture obsessed with outward appearances. Kevin Spacey plays Lester Burnham, a man in his mid-40s going through an intense midlife crisis; he's grown cynical and is convinced that he has no reason to go on. Lester's relationship with his wife Carolyn (Annette Bening) is not a warm one; while on the surface Carolyn strives to present the image that she's in full control of her life, inside she feels empty and desperate. Their teenage daughter Jane (Thora Birch) is constantly depressed, lacking in self-esteem, and convinced that she's unattractive. Her problems aren't helped by her best friend Angela (Mena Suvari), an aspiring model who is quite beautiful and believes that that alone makes her a worthwhile person. Jane isn't the only one who has noticed that Angela is attractive: Lester has fallen into uncontrollable lust for her, and she becomes part of his drastic plan to change his body and change his life. Meanwhile, next door, Colonel Fitts (Chris Cooper) has spent a lifetime in the Marine Corps and can understand and tolerate no other way of life, which makes life difficult for his son Ricky (Wes Bentley), an aspiring filmmaker and part-time drug dealer who is obsessed with beauty, wherever and whatever it may be. American Beauty was also the screen debut for screenwriter Alan Ball.
