the traditional dvsfunctional family.
In 1980, Robert Redford's Ordinary
People took home multiple Academy
Awards for its look into the lives of a
family, troubled by the tragic loss of
their son. Mary Tyler Moore breaks
from her TV~ persona to play a
isicked iother whorefuses tofor-
give her surviving son.
Last spring, several statuettes went
to Sam Mendes' American Beauty,
a closer look at the troubled lives of
your everydas American family in
Suburbia. Kevin Spacey's Lester
Burnham becomes the archetype for
angry fathers in desk jobs every-
where whove found their Angela in

the form of MTV vixen Britney
Spears.
Finally, we can't leave out the ulti-
nate family melodrama, Nicholas
Rav's Rebel Without a Cause
(1955). In a legendary starmaking
performance by Jamies Dean, his per-
formancee as Jiini Stark defines the
prototypical teen angst rebel, fight-
ing against his passive father and his
overbearing mother.
So take it from Will Smith,
"Parents just don't understand." But
maybe, just maybe if you curl up
with sour mom and dad with one of
these classics, you'll be a little clos-
er in seeing eye to eye.
