Revolutionary Road is a film based on the novel by the same name written by Richard Yates . The film is being directed by Sam Mendes (remember his debut hit movie – American Beauty ?)
Revolutionary Road is scheduled for a December 26, 2008 release in the United States (don’t know when it’ll release in India). The plot of the film focuses on the hopes and aspirations of Frank and April Wheeler , a couple who see themselves as very different from their neighbours. April is an aspiring actress whereas Frank has a corporate job. To cope with his work pressures, Frank takes to alcohol and also has an affair with one of his co-worker.
Frank and April’s marriage to each other slowly goes from bad to worse.
Leonardo DiCaprio plays the role of Frank Wheeler and Kate Winslet plays April Wheeler . It would be interesting to watch the famous Titanic pair of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet back together on screen again. If they were ready to die for each other in Titanic, the scene takes a complete U-turn in Revolutionary Road.
