A sexually frustrated suburban father has a mid-life crisis after becoming infatuated with his daughter's best friend.
Director Sam Mendes storyboarded extensively, based on his plan to use three visual styles--a very formal style for the bulk of the film, augmented by a more graceful style for the fantasy scenes and a handheld look for the video footage.
I need a father who's a role model, not some horny geek-boy who's gonna spray his shorts whenever I bring a girlfriend home from school. What a lame-o. Someone really should just put him out of his misery.
Ricky Fitts: Want me to kill him for you?
Jane Burnham: Yeah. Would ...
A buffet/sideboard on the wall behind Carolyn's chair in several wide shots of the Burnham's dining room (from foyer and stairs) never appears in Lester's POV shots from his end of the table looking directly at Carolyn who should be sitting in front of that large piece of furniture against the wall.
