What the Critics say

Nils van der Linden
Peter Feldman An engaging period piece.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert This film is so good it is devastating. A lot of people believe their parents didn't understand them. What if they didn't understand themselves?
Jason Anderson Revolutionary Road’s portrait of mid-century suburban malaise is unremittingly grim.
Peter Travers What does a cult 1961 Richard Yates novel about a 1950s marriage rotting in the burbs have to say to a new century? Plenty, and hold on, because the raw and riveting Revolutionary Road hits you where it hurts.
C. Fuchs A little suburban unhappiness, disillusion and depression go a long way, be that near, far, or wherever you are. Good but not great.
Tomatometer Brilliantly acted and emotionally powerful, Revolutionary Road is a handsome adaptation of Richard Yates' celebrated novel.
