American Beauty (1999)

Mena Suvari as "Angela Hayes"

Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey) is a gainfully employed suburban husband and father. Fed up with his boring, stagnant existence, he quits his job and decides to reinvent himself as a pot-smoking, responsibility-shirking teenager. What follows is at once cynical, hysterical, and, eventually, tragically uplifting.

British Academy of Film & Television Arts (1999) Nominated Actress in a Supporting Role
