Three American Beauties

Film Review by Dean Duncan May 28, 2015

So lovely! The colouring is simple, and it’s surpassing exquisite. A tremulous red rose—an American Beauty rose, of course—gives way to a modest, beautiful lady with her eyes averted (that dress!), and then to a billowing American flag. Preceded by such organic and natural demureness that flag, which can register in the world as garish and gaudy and confrontationally colourful, looks just as pretty and inevitable as the images that precede it. Then, the stars!
