4.0 out of 5 stars Time to get off the roundabout! Sept. 16 2010
By Lesley Z TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Revolutionary Road....My 30 something daughter recommended this to me as a must see. I was a bit reluctant at first with the cliche reuniting of Leo and Kate, so about 8 months later I watched it.

It is about the angst of relationships, centering on the wobbly marriage of a couple who bought the "everything will be perfect, if we just find our picture-perfect house" etc... Well, years and two children later, boy and girl, things just don't appear to be settling into the halcyon days promised. By every 50's standard, they had it all.

What Revolutionary Road poses is basically who are the "they" who write these rules in life, who promise paradise and deliver reality? When, where and what date did people let the "norm" become the only reality acceptable? When did he and she lose track of the ideas, dreams, hopes that get us through each redundant, mind-numbing day? Is the pioneer/adventurous spirit totally annihilated in this day and age? Have we,ourselves, been packaged, advertised and sold as a product that just fills in the spaces for society?

This is an adult movie by fact that the issues it deals with are grownup problems. Having grown up in the fifties, I remember when if you knew someone who was divorced, well there just had to be adultery there (heard of 2 divorces in my entire childhood!). Why? .....people stayed together, regardless! That is just the way it was. Many of us have lived through a lot of what this couple faces...the fights, the frustrations on both sides, having the 'perfect house" and still leaving one day when we could no longer say "I love you" and mean it!

Leo and Kate give superb performances as the troubled couple. They play the pathos with honesty and care. She is crying while doing the dishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breaking away from the ordinary... Sept. 24 2010
By Edmonson TOP 1000 REVIEWER
"Revolutionary Road" is brought to life by the extraordinary performances of Leonardo Di Capria (Frank Wheeler) and Kate Winslet (April Wheeler). The movie portrays a young couple who are stuck in a rut and decide at one point to make a major change in their lives and move from Connecticut to Paris. This sounds all well and good, but then various new options and obstacles begin to mount. He's offered a better paying job, and she gets pregnant, and so instead of being able to make a break for a new life the prison of their lives begins to get tighter. It is apparent early on that April is unhappy with her life. On the other hand Frank seems resigned to his vacuous life. April is frustrated with their lives and grows resentful of Frank's complacency. There is a chilling scene, the morning after their big argument, when Frank comes to breakfast. April acts like one of the Stepford wifes, behaving with utmost perfection, like a dutiful wife, as if nothing ever happened the night before. Frank seems bewildered, but relieved, and doesn't seem to think too much about what his wife's chilling transformation could mean.

Sam Mendes (Road to Perdition, American Beauty) beautifully directs this movie, which initially seems trapped in the inertia of its all too idealized depiction of 1950's America, but then Mendes takes us down this disturbing path where everything that is too perfect, sterile and bland is revealed as a kind of prison for this couple, and this facilitates in highlighting the underlining tension between Frank and April. This is a monumental movie that takes its time in order to weave it web.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine film, but creepy June 29 2009
Revolutionary Road stars Kate Winslet and Leo Dicaprio about a 30-ish couple who become bored with their lives. They decide to spice it up by moving to Paris and bringing their two young ones with them, but that plan proves to be easier said than done.

One thing for sure is that the leads deliver fantastic performances in this film. The concept of feeling bored with your life is something many can relate to and might strike a chord with many viewers. Be warned: This movie is very depressing, downbeat and even creepy at times. But still worth a watch and proves to be a satisfying viewing experience.

By Eric Lawton TOP 500 REVIEWER
Although set in 1955 this movie is timeless; should we take the easy, conventional route through life, or take a huge risk with the hopes of making something extraordinary of our lives. April Wheeler (Kate Winslet) persuades husband Frank (Leonardo DiCaprio) to leave his boring job and take their children off to Paris where they can start a new life. April will work and give Frank the time to find his true passion. But a promotion, a mistress and April's announcement that she is pregnant weigh in on the conventional side of the balance for Frank, while April feels increasingly trapped. Strong acting by both the stars bring out many of the emotions felt on both sides while a strong supporting cast roots this more firmly in mid-50's middle-America. There is not much subtlety in the acting or sentiment, though; be prepared for the proverbial emotional roller coaster.
The photography is also well worth watching. It also takes care to anchor the setting in time and place, leaving it as an exercise to the audience to see the 21st Century version in themselves. The lingering character shots give lots of space for the actors to shine.
