Revolutionary Road!

The last film of the day, is not really a trailer, but a first look from Entertainment Tonight. I must say, this movie looks amazing already!

Revolutionary Road stars Academy Award Nominees Leonardo DiCaprio (Blood Diamond, The Aviator & What's Eating Gilbert Grape) and Kate Winslet (Little Children, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Iris, Titanic and Sense and Sensibility) as April and Frank Wheeler are a young, thriving couple living with their two children in a Connecticut suburb in the mid-1950s. Their self-assured exterior masks a creeping frustration at their inability to feel fulfilled in their relationships or careers. Frank is mired in a well-paying but boring office job, and April is a housewife still mourning the demise of her hoped-for acting career. Determined to identify themselves as superior to the mediocre sprawl of suburbanites who surround them, they decide to move to France where they will be better able to develop their true artistic sensibilities, free of the consumerist demands of capitalist America. As their relationship deteriorates into an endless cycle of squabbling, jealousy and recriminations, their trip and their dreams of self-fulfillment are thrown into jeopardy.

This is the first time that Leo and Kate have been on screen together since Titanic, and boy does it look amazing! The film is directed by Academy Award Winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty) and it will be released on December 26th!
