Revolutionary Road

How do you break free without breaking apart?


Revolutionary Road
Leo and Kate hook up together for the first time since Titanic, in a very different kind of romance. They're married, and recently moved from the city to 1960s suburbia. There is trouble in paradise, as she longs to move to France, while he has trouble at work. Seeking happiness, both look for love outside the marriage. Sooner or later, things have to come to a head... Winslet has won acclaim for her performance.

Roger Ebert quote iconThis 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?

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconRevolutionary Road’s portrait of mid-century suburban malaise is unremittingly grim.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconWhat 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 quote iconA little suburban unhappiness, disillusion and depression go a long way, be that near, far, or wherever you are. Good but not great.
