Product Description

Product Description

A young couple living in a Connecticut suburb during the mid-1950s struggle to come to terms with their personal problems while tryi ng to raise their two children. Based on a novel by Richard Yates

From Amazon.co.uk

In Revolutionary Road, Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio reunite for the first time since their careers exploded with Titanic--and it's almost as if they're playing the same characters, only married and faced with the hollowness of a 1950s suburban existence. Frank and April Wheeler (DiCaprio and Winslet) always thought of themselves as special, but they settled in a conventional Connecticut suburb when they had children. Hungry for a less constricted life, April persuades Frank to move to Paris--but slowly their plans unravel and their marriage unravels along with it. While Revolutionary Road may be a bit too glib about suburban emptiness--the lives Frank and April lead don't seem so stifled--the portrait of a mismatched marriage is vivid and devastating. The ways that Frank and April misinterpret each other, and the subtle yet unbearable dissatisfaction they feel, is rendered with remarkable and unsettling acuteness. Winslet and DiCaprio's natural chemistry tells us what drew these two together, making the way they tear each other apart all the more shocking. The excellent supporting cast includes Kathy Bates (Misery), Dylan Baker (Happiness), and especially Michael Shannon (Bug) as a mentally troubled mathematician who cuts to the quick of the Wheelers' troubles. Mention must be made of the beautiful production design; the costumes and sets are simply gorgeous. --Bret Fetzer

oh my god i love these two. this is not an easy film to watch but my goodness it is worth it. the leads are perfect together and have such a connection in real life that it translates on to the screen. you watch this film like a guilty outsider as they tear each other and their relationship apart. it is genius, sad and a whole other mix of feelings and emotions. you so want it to work for them that you cant look away - brilliant support by Michael Shannon. why hasn't Leonardo Dicaprio won an Oscar?

Maybe Sam Mendes masterpiece (along with Skyfall): a tragic, intense and still essential film inspired by 50ies melodrama, without all the sentimental excesses of that genre: here there is no showing off but, when it comes to deeply emotional moments, you are led to them by a balanced and elegant direction and script that let the story naturally unfolds with no cheesy twists or easy use of musical comment like they used to do in the past.
Here, despite the truly elegant look of the film (with a stunning photogrpahy that reminds of Edward Hopper and some american photographers) the heart of the story hides a hot, explosive and genuine mix of emotions, dreams and desires that clashes with the oppressing and frustrating mentality of that era, yet maintaining a universal value so you can easily identify with his and her point of view, also thanks to actors splendid performances, who go more for understatement than overacting, thus creating a hidden tension that explodes just in few scenes and make them even more dramatic.
I do not think it is just a coincidence that Mendes took the couple from Titanic, giving them the chance after many years, to meet again and picture a completely different love affair, more mature, suffered and true than that. Here there is no glamour, no clichè, but just 2 fantastic grown up actors that give their best performance ever letting the beautiful book (the film is based on) shine in all his dramatic beauty.

BLU RAY is fantastic, presenting a perfect hd transfer which really shows the beauty of the cinematography and includes some very interesting extra, from interviews to backstage and a making-of diary by Sam Mendes

A fantastic film looking at suburban life and the basic desires that drive people. Kate Winslet stands head and shoulders above most other actresses with an amazing performance, managing to instill a believable humanity in what could have been a very unsympathetic character. If you're feeling frustrated with your life then this film really strikes a cord.

You don't get many laughs here and unlike Sam Mendes' superb "American Beauty" there aren't any layers or clever twists to keep your attention... just a depressingly bleak story about a couple watching their hopes & dreams disintegrate as the reality of the suburban life they're locked into hits home.

So worth the effort? Absolutely, for two reasons. Firstly, the acting is brilliant - Kate Winslet, quite rightly, wins huge praise for her portrayal of the frustrated and tormented wife but in many ways it's Leonardo DiCaprio who has the more difficult role as the confused husband and, despite unfair criticisms about his "boyish looks", he carries it off convincingly and equally superbly. Together, they're incredible - so good that they become wholly believable people trapped in a wholly believable marriage.

And, secondly, despite the one-dimensional story and the effort of watching it slowly unfold to a fairly predictable conclusion, this is powerful stuff: couples argue like this, lovers hurt each other like this, people destroy each other's dreams like this, and real life is like this... so much so that it's at times deeply uncomfortable viewing. Not much fun then but after getting through it all you won't forget it in a hurry and, on the way, you'll witness some of the best acting you've ever seen.

`Revolutionary Road' tells the story of Frank (Leonardo DiCaprio) and April (Kate Winslet) who are a young married couple with two children who live a life that appears perfect but to them it isn't. After many arguments and near break-ups, April suggests that they live their dream and move to Paris. Franks hates his job so has nothing to lose, so he agrees. But then their circumstances change and April decides she will do anything to get out of their unhappy relationship.

I'm a massive fan of Sam Mendes' other films American Beauty and Road to Perdition so I couldn't wait to see this, and now that I have I am not disappointed at all. The story is quite a basic romance/break-up film but has such a good script and casting, with an amazing and believable 1950's suburban setting, it is just fantastic. DiCaprio and Winslet are both excellent, their arguments are very heated and the chemistry between them feels very real.

Don't expect a happy film here though - it does show the harsh realities of love that most films of this kind avoid and seem to live in some perfect dream world. In `Revolutionary Road' it shows all potential down falls in relationships and tries to find a way to fix them, which sometimes fails but sometimes is successful and this is what makes this film so refreshing and, although depressing at times, quite heart-lifting as it shows that even in movies Hollywood romance is not always a happy one.

Overall this film isn't going to be for everyone but for me I thoroughly enjoyed it and may even give the book that this is based upon a read soon. It also has an incredible score from Thomas Newman that really fits in well with the mood of the film.
