      Wendy Ide Times (UK) The elegant savagery of the author Richard Yates’s dialogue, which reads with a gratifyingly poetic violence, doesn’t sit quite as easily in the mouths of actors. Still the performances are forceful... Jul 25, 2022 Full Review Tammy Oler Bitch Media In making a better man out of Frank Wheeler, Mendes and Haythe have, unfortunately, thrown out one of the real achievement's of Yates's novel: his ruthless critique of 1950s masculinity. Dec 18, 2020 Full Review Deborah Ross The Spectator This is a handsome, intelligent and careful adaptation which may be too bookish... Always fully engrossing, even if it is too coolly detached to ever be involving. Aug 29, 2018 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review DiCaprio and Winslet have rarely been better. Rated: 4/4 Mar 3, 2024 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A must-see for adults who don’t mind getting their hands dirty on messy emotions. Rated: 3.5/4 Feb 18, 2023 Full Review Nicholas Oon Maximum Hype (YouTube) This is the type of film some people might find a little bit boring, but others will absolutely love for the performances, the writing, and the deep dive into human psychology and the depths of people's desires.

      Test T It's difficult to find the words to describe just how good this film actually is. The story is a simple everyday tale of an ambitious couple with a young family, but told in an extremely honest and thought provoking way. The acting is superb and the pacing, although steady, is just right. The locations and cinematography are excellent, as is the subtle but purposeful musical score. The whole movie comes togeather so gracefully to take the viewer almost unaware on a compelling and sometimes frightening rollercoaster ride of emotions. It firmly held my attention throughout it's near 2 hour runtime, which seemed to pass much more quickly. I really appreciated this film and thoroughly recommend it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/12/23 Full Review matthias s "Revolutionary Road" is a thought-provoking film that delves into the complexities of suburban life and the human struggle for fulfillment. With strong performances from Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, the movie takes us on an emotional rollercoaster through the highs and lows of their relationship. While the storyline is compelling, the slow pace isn't my cup of tea. However, the beautifully shot scenes and intense dialogues keep you engaged throughout. It's a movie that will leave you pondering the choices we make in life and the price we pay for conformity. A thought-provoking watch for those seeking a departure from mainstream cinema. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/11/23 Full Review Ravi T The acting was great! The story was a bit triggering. Definitely a toxic couple. But I guess that's how it was for couples back then...scary. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/05/23 Full Review Le W How to find happiness in the quiet life day after day. Peace is happiness. A lot of people think it's a marriage movie, but I don't think it has anything to do with marriage. Anyone can end and leave a marriage. April's problem isn't with her marriage, it's with her own life. Frank's problem wasn't his marriage, it was his career. So Frank and April quickly agreed on a plan to live in Paris. Both are looking forward to the changes in their lives ahead. Two people trying to reverse roles. April goes to work, Frank takes care of the house. The excitement level of the two people seems to be back in love. Because they were all excited about the new life ahead of them. As a woman and a wife, I understand that April did not realize her self-worth and felt angry and resentful for her mediocrity. There are many ways she wants to change, she can continue to study, find her own circle, start a new career, or study drama... But she chose an extreme way. Frank couldn't manage his own emotions, let alone try his best to help April. Life is plain, in this plain day, nothing happened is a good thing. If you can find your own fun, it's worth spending your life. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/14/23 Full Review Karen W One of the most boring films I have seen.Thank goodness I was in the house so I could keep forwarding it! Had really high Hope's as I love Kate Winslet.Awful Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/10/23 Full Review Gareth v Kate Winslet plays a repressed and at times lonely housewife. Again. This is snapshot in to married life in American suburbia, that just fails to ignite. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
