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 ...
The dining room table is set with 6 crystal/glass candle holders with white candles when Jane crosses the room to the window to see if Ricky Fitts is still watching her but during both dinner scenes/sequences with the family at the table we see only 4 holders when the candles are lit.
