Movies can tell us a lot about hidden aspects of our world, things that may go unnoticed and unacknowledged every day. But if you listen and look closely enough you will realise many of them hold valuable life lessons which we can take away afterwards, and even apply it to our own lives.
1. The World is Full of Beauty - American Beauty
Ricky is the only character in American Beauty who can see beauty in everything around him, without hesitation. And if you think about it, he's right to view the world like this because it's absolutely true. Everything around us is full of beauty and it's up to us to take the time to stop and realise that before the chance is gone.
Ricky shows us that something like an empty, plastic bag or a dead bird lying on the grass are beautiful in their own way and that's something that should be admired by all of us.
