7 Memorable Fantasy Dream Sequences in Film

American Beauty Rose Petals

With a passionless marriage and a loathsome job, American Beauty's central character, Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey), enters a midlife crisis, which as unenviable as it is, causes him to look inward at who he is and how he really wants to live. However, it also causes him to look elsewhere sexually.

Lester's fantasies involving his daughter's friend Angela (Mena Suvari) and vibrant red rose petals are not only visually striking and memorable editions to the film, but they also help push Lester to living a freer, more youthful life. It's just too bad that life ended as Lester began to discover life's true beauties.
