Marriage. Lovely and complex. Intimate and vulnerable. Fascinating and strange. Is love always enough? Frank and April Wheeler are everything a broken marriage is about. They are what the young middle-class is about. They are the real people who dream about living only to be dragged down by the bitter reality.

Revolutionary Road devastates us in rather an expert way. It tears us into pieces beautifully. It is always bad. It is melancholic, poetic, disturbing in all senses you have ever known. But, it is realistic. It is depressing. It is how a lot of marriages turn out to be in our world.

And above all things, it has our favorite pair Leo and Kate. With exquisite performances that never fail to capture and tug at the right emotions, the film is well written, well shot and well received. If anything, watch it for Winslet.
