Revolutionary Road Movie New Trailer

Marriage is not always an easy thing, even more difficult when you dream about a life of adventures. So let's think how hard it can be for liberal minds living in the conformist world of the 1950s! The movie Revolutionary Road, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, dives into this theme.

Here below a new Revolutionary Road trailer:

Revolutionary Road Trailer

Revolutionary Road is an upcoming drama movie directed by Sam Mendes and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. It is a movie adaptation of the 1961 novel of the same name by Richard Yates. The film should be release in late December 2008.

Here below the first official trailer of Revolutionary Road:

The Plot:
"Set in 1955, the plot focuses on the hopes and aspirations of Frank and April Wheeler, self-assured Connecticut suburbanites who see themselves as very different from their neighbors in the Revolutionary Hill Estates. April is an aspiring actress who yearns to move to Paris, while Frank copes with toiling away at a corporate job he despises by drinking too heavily and engaging in an affair with a co-worker. The couple's marriage slowly dissolves into an endless cycle of bitter arguments and jealous recriminations." (Source: Wikipedia)

Yates once said about his central theme:

"If my work has a theme, I suspect it is a simple one: that most human beings are inescapably alone, and therein lies their tragedy."
Richard Yates
In Boston Review (October 1999)

So judging from this Revolutionary Road trailer I think the movie does respect the spirit of Yates' novels. Director Sam Mendes has indeed made a great work in directing his talented cast: the result is a movie that gives real life to its characters.

If I may slightly change Writer Alfred Kazin's words about Yates' book, I would say that Revolutionary Road is a powerful movie on the way people lived in the 1950's.

Revolutionary Road is about love, but no the Titanic kind that Leonardo DiCaprio may have once epitomized. In Revolution Road, it is about real love, with its ups and downs...

When I see Leonardo DiCaprio in his 1050-1960's outfit I can but think of Catch Me If You Can! I hope Revolutionary Road will know the same success!
