A Great Film!
First, I rented this movie. I liked so much that I now own a copy. In many ways, it is so similar to my younger years (I just turned 66). It is a great movie.

1950s trapped housewife
This film was too engaged in anger , the plot never went anywhere,a couple meets falls in love early in film leading you to beleive okay lets see where this goes, then it settles into the two fighting all the time, the gist of the film is how the 50s woman felt trapped , stuck as a housewife always trying to please the man but never herself ,i do believe that how it was for a woman but i doubt that much fighting went on in the 50s showing life's anger today in the 1954 kate played her part well and so did lee

A Mature Look At A Decaying Marriage
Kate Winslet (April Wheeler) and Leonardo DiCaprio (Frank Wheeler) shine in this 2008 movie as the married couple who hate their life but love each other until.... In 1955 at the dawn of computers, Frank is a salesman for Knox Co, who is developing a model. He and his wife live in Connecticut, and he commutes to work by train to New York City every day. She has an outlet as an actress in community theatre, but the plays are bad. We learn that she is especially unhappy, and he is so bored that he starts having an affair. And then April comes up with a plan to change everything. They can use their savings and move to Paris where she can get a job and Frank can find his true self in a city that he talks about constantly. They become so excited and brag about their plan to neighbors Shep (David Harbour) and Milly (Kathryn Hahn) and fellow workers. Everything is great again, but then April learns that she is pregnant again. And to complicate matters Frank is offered a big promotion at Knox. This movie is not "Titanic." It is a mature look at a disintegrating marriage. Many of us have been through what this couple is demonstrating for us. It is more serious than director Sam Mendes' previous Best Picture winner "American Beauty," but it is similar in its theme of a disintegrating marriage. It also echoes Julianne Moore's dilemma in "The Hours." Kate Winslet was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress for this movie. But when Oscars were announced, she won for another 2008 hit "The Reader." Leonardo DiCaprio was not nominated for an Oscar but should have been. Don't watch this movie if you want an uplift in mood. But if you like serious drama that doesn't always turn out happily, you will like it.
Good Acting and an enjoyable story
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, who teamed up in the blockbuster movie TITANIC, get together again for Revolutionary Road. The movie is set in the 1950s in suburban America. Frank (DiCaprio) works as a salesman for a large company (the same job his father worked at) he commutes from the suburbs every day to join his fellow workers at this dull, dead end job. April (Winslet) is the typical suburban housewife who stays at home to cook, clean and take care for the children. Frank and April not only hate their lives, they hate their neighbors, their relatives and they even hate each other. When April comes up with a plan that will change their lives, hope appears to be around the corner, yet with all of the "best laid plans' this one too must come to an end. This was a good movie, it was entertaining and enjoyable. However I am a bit older and enjoy watching how life was like 'back in the day'. Some younger viewers may not find this as enjoyable. It definitely was NOT Titanic, however it was a good movie. Rated 4 of 5 for good acting and an enjoyable story.
i give it 569590675496 stars!!!!!!!!
it was epic! it was SO well done. the acting... the chemistry between kate and leo is just unreal and they should be together in real life. not that titanic didn't already show that, but god, this movie did 395864395876958 times more. they're just extrodinary together. that is my most favorite movie ever. i loved how real the arguments were. it was all just so well done. i love love love love love that movie. it was just phenomenal to me. i can't get over the actor and actress those two are. there isn't another like them, espeically leonardo. and i would like to get into the writers head and wonder what they were thinking to make sucha movie. i guess that's how i am, i adore movies like this one for more than the plot, i think about the roles and the people behind the scripts and writing. i give it 569590675496 stars!!!!!!!!
