Trailer: Revolutionary Road
Frank (three-time Academy Award® nominee Leonardo DiCaprio)and April (five-time Academy Award® nominee Kate Winslet) have always seen themselves as special, different, ready and willing to live their lives based on higher ideals. So, as soon as they move into their new house on Revolutionary Road, they proudly declare their independence from the suburban inertia that surrounds them and determine never to be trapped by the social confines of their era.
Yet for all their charm, beauty and irreverence, the Wheelers find themselves becoming exactly what they didn’t expect: a good man with a meaningless job whose nerve has gone missing; a less-than-happy homemaker starving for fulfillment and passion; an American family with lost dreams, like any other.
Directed by Sam Mendes (Academy Award® winner American Beauty), from a screenplay by Justin Haythe, Revolutionary Road features an accomplished supporting cast including Academy Award® winner Kathy Bates, Kathryn Hahn (Boeing-Boeing) Michael Shannon (Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, Bug) and David Harbour (Awake).
Revolutionary Road is released in the UK on the 30th of January 2009.
