Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio reunite over a decade later for a dark and winding trip down “Revolutionary Road”. Starring Kate as April Wheeler a beautiful young woman who meets intriguing Frank Wheeler (Leonardo) at a bar one evening. Fast forward some years later and the two are in a dysfunctional marriage. They are living in a suburb of Connecticut with their two young children. April is a stay at home mother while Frank is working to provide for the family. April and Frank are equally miserable with their marriage.
To everyone else the Wheeler’s seem perfect, but behind closed doors we are let into their dark secrets. April who seems determined to save her marriage decides to proposition Frank with an offer she hopes he can not refuse. She wants him to quit his job and relocate the entire family to Paris where she will find employment and he can stay at home with the children. Initially Frank has his concerns, but April makes sure to ease his mind and convince him it is what she needs to make the marriage work. The two are close to packing their bags when April discovers she is pregnant.
Frank and April determine having a child and moving across the country is not a practical idea. April decides it would be best to terminate the pregnancy, while Frank is completely opposing the idea. April determined to terminate the child insists that Frank consider the option. Once he renders his decision that he will not move and he wants the child April breaks down and runs away. Away from her life and herself.
The film plays out as two lost souls who at one time had hopes and dreams that have been thrown aside. Now determined to make a doomed marriage work both characters are horrifically on a one way ticket to imminent disaster. Leonardo offered a grand performance. The trying husband wants to please his wife, yet wanting to kill her at the same time. His frustrations played out so well that you could not help but feel sympathy for him. Kate as April was undeniably true talent at its best. Her complete disregard and hatred for her life and husband were awing. “Revolutionary Road” is a dreary and depressing tale that would not have survived without the powerful and emotional performances by Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.No more submissions accepted at this time.
