crazy/beautiful is a 2001 romantic drama film starring Kirsten Dunst and Jay Hernandez. Nicole Oakley, the spoiled, rich, out-of-control daughter of congressman Tom Oakley, meets a working class Mexican-American straight-A student, Carlos Nuñez, resulting in a clash of cultures, values, and a love affair. Nicole is troubled because her mother committed suicide when she was very young. She feels unwanted by her father, who is now married to another woman and has another young daughter with his new wife. Carlos, on the other hand, is from a poor background and working hard towards becoming a Navy pilot. They meet at a beach while Nicole is on "community service" and discover they attend the same high school.
