Frank (Leonardo DiCaprio) and April Wheeler (Kate Winslet) always see themselves as far-removed from the conventionality of suburbia. Yet that is exactly what creeps up on them when they buy a house in Connecticut. He toils 10 hours a day in a job he hates, while she, as a 1950s homemaker, yearns for fulfillment and passion. Rebelling against the torpor of their lives, the couple plan an escape that may push them to their limits.
Directed by Sam Mendes. With Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Christopher Fitzgerald, Jonathan Roumie. A young couple living in a Connecticut suburb ...
Revolutionary Road (Revolutionary Road) ( 2008 )
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet reunite in Sam Mendes' despairing meditation on the emptiness and hopelessness of 1950s suburbia.
Handsomely done and beautifully acted, just slightly wanting in a screenplay that leaves questions unanswered about what’s behind these unhappy people. And it’s ultra-depressing...
There's no doubting Winslet's acting prowess. Her April is wasted, exhausted, emotionally spent, and fighting to be alive. It's a sight to behold.
