Revolutionary Road - Revolutionary Road review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
25/02/2010

I'm not overly convinced by Leornado di Caprio's talents as an actor so I thought I'd be disappointed; but no! Both actors are brilliant in this tense story.

The wife is so disappointed with her lack of personal achievement and hubby just doesn't appreciate just how hurt she is. The way he grins so sheepishly at breakfast when she calmly turns into the all-American housewife. This is a very fine film.

Great movie - Revolutionary Road review by TH

Another great Sam Mendes film. Both Leo and Kate are fantastic in this film. This is a slow burner but it's both engaging and showcases some great acting from all involved. It's not an easy film to watch but it's a great film that makes you think.

Highly recommend.

Not a Date Movie - Revolutionary Road review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
18/05/2009

In time Revolutionary Road will be remembered for Kate Winslet’s performance and that alone. She plays a struggling wife, caught in a marriage that is in freefall. The backdrop is perfect Americana, think Mad Men with its clean-cut presentation and attention to detail. Events unfold, soon transpiring into a series of arguments and mistakes from both husband and wife, as the rot sets in. Sam Mendes has delivered a serious drama, perhaps too bland and frankly boring for many viewers. He may have given Kate a perfect role to show off her talents, but the rest of the film requires dedication to see through till the end.
