In this movie, adapted from the novel by Richard Yates, director Sam Mendes once again takes on what is, or was, perceived to be American suburban living. Mendes does so with sensitivity, insight and a trademark rebellious nature. The movie is very interesting and he uses wonderful actors to play out his drama about an idealistic marriage in the 50s which slowly starts to tear apart at the seams. As the central characters, Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio make a good pair, as they did in The Titanic. Both give memorable performances. Thankfully, Mendes continues to push the envelope/

If you love Kate Winslet and Leonardo DeCaprio, you'll love Revolutionary Road. It is amazing to see them both together again.

This movie is a must see for any child raised during the 60's. I feel it helps us to understand our parents better and the gender role that was put upon them by Society. The performances are excellent.

11 YEARS AGO THEY STEPPED ABOARD THE TITANIC AS JACK DAWSON AND ROSE DEWITT BUKATER, NOW IN 2008 THEIR TOGETHER AGAIN. LEONARDO DiCAPRIO AND KATE WINSLET HAVE COME TOGETHER FOR ANOTHER DRAMATIC ROMANCE WHICH IS UNRAVELING DURING THE ENTIRE FILM. ITS HEART BREAKING BUT AS THE INTERVIEWS SAY WITH THEM THEY ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO COMING TOGETHER AGAIN IN ANOTHER 10-11 YEARS WHICH WILL BE ALMOST 2017 OR 2018. GREAT FILM

A half a century ago migration from the noisy high-powered success of the city to the serenity of the suburbs found the path of REVOLUTIONARY ROAD a common one. Richard Yates' novel about the fragility of married commitment in 1955 has been very successfully transformed to the screen by writer Justin Haythe, director Sam Mendes and a perfect cast of actors. All of the soured expectations of that period gel in this superb film - a movie that is difficult to watch at times, mostly because it rings so very true. Frank (Leonardo DiCaprio) and April (Kate Winslet) Wheeler move to Connecticut from New York when the addition of children to their lives of thwarted expectations alter their once dreamy plans for their future. Once in the 'just perfect' little suburb and living in a just perfect little house sold to them by real estate agent Helen Givings (Kathy Bates) - who has a grown son John (Michael Shannon) who is in a mental institution and has undergone multiple shock therapy treatments that allow him to see things as they are no matter how cruel or rude his views - Frank settles for life in the Knox Business Machines Company, reluctantly following in the footsteps of his father while April attempts to rationalize her dreams of being an actress by appearing in an unimpressive amateur theatrical group. From the opening frames of this claustrophobically suffocating new life the once happy couple shows signs of deterioration of a marriage. The manner in which they couple attempt to dramatically change their boring life is destroyed by the realities of their situation: another pregnancy plays a significant role in the downward spiral of Frank and April's future and we as viewers are forced to watch the castle crumble. Winslet and DiCaprio are excellent in the lead roles, offering the type of sensitive acting skills that pull the audience into the film. The supporting roles by Kathy Bates, Michael Shannon, David Harbour, Richard Easton and Kathryn Hahn are cameos worthy of praise. Every aspect of the film recreates the 1955 era anD in some ways that 'distance' makes observing the film emotionally more tolerable. This is a sad story that has no redeeming end. Well worth the attention it has received. Grady Harp
