" Revoluntionary Road " will not be everyone's cup of tea. Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio give stellar performances as April and Frank Wheeler a young, thriving couple living with their two children in a Connecticut suburb in the mid-1950s. If you enjoy seeing great performances by an actor(s) then you should check this out.

Their self-assured exterior masks a creeping frustration at their inability to feel fulfilled in their relationships or careers. Frank is mired in a well-paying but boring office job, and April is a housewife still mourning the demise of her hoped-for acting career. Determined to identify themselves as superior to the mediocre sprawl of suburbanites who surround them, they decide to move to France where they will be better able to develop their true artistic sensibilities, free of the consumerist demands of capitalist America. As their relationship deteriorates into an endless cycle of squabbling, jealousy and recriminations, their trip and their dreams of self-fulfillment are thrown into jeopardy.

As I stated in the beginning this is not for everyone, at times I was reminded of " Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" what with all the bickering and arguing that takes place.

Revoluntionary Road gives us a look behind our neighbors doors; not everything is as it seems on the outside.

Highly Recommended for those that enjoy dramas of this nature, otherwise stay away.
