Revolutionary Road

What a depressing film! Imagine watching It's A Wonderful Life, but imagine that no angel ever comes to rescue George Bailey from suicide. Horrible! As far as the filmmaking goes, it was great. And the acting was good. It was nice to see Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet back on the screen together again. But that novelty wasn't enough to make the movie a winner. Mr. DiCaprio and Ms. Winslet play a couple in their late 20s who married very young on a whim, have two kids, live in the suburbs, and have tried to make the best life for their family as possible. But they are their own worst enemies.
