FILM CLIPS: REVOLUTIONARY ROAD (2008)

ATTENTION: SPOILERS AHEAD!

With the recent release of Wildlife, I couldn’t help but think of Revolutionary Road. Centering around the dissolving marriage of Frank and April Wheeler, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, the couple believe that this charming suburban life they are living is truly starting to rot them from the inside out. My heart aches for April as her dreams of becoming something special, slowly drift away with all the obligations to her family.

In this clip, we see everything from this film begin to hit the fan. All the lies and heart ache that these characters at one time were able to cope with, now begin to explode. Michael Shannon takes lead as he plays the ill-adjusted John Givings. John’s lack of a filter forces Frank and April to confront the lies they’ve been forcing down in one of the best scenes of the film.
