Revolutionary Road

The buzz on this one is huge.

Once again, Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet team up in what looks to be a way meatier film than Titanic ever thought about being. And, PS, Titanic would be the movie that, when it won the Best Picture Oscar, nearly caused me to spontaneously combust. Seriously overrated, in my opinion.

Anyway, "Revolutionary Road" is directed by Winslet's husband, Sam Mendes (Jar Head, Road to Perdition, American Beauty, The Kite Runner, Little Voice). In it, a married couple struggles against the narrow confines of 1950's society. The film also features Kathy Bates. All of these artists have the chops for greatness and the preview looks really raw. I like raw. Life is raw, after all. And, God knows? Marriage is raw.

Definitely on my list.

I could not possibly agree with you more about Titanic. The Academy redeemed themselves with recognition for American Beauty in '99. Looks promising for Revolutionary Road.

Awww...Titanic was lovely. Why you gotta be a hater?

Yes, Titanic was a sweet little story. But, more way more Hallmark Hall of Fame than Oscar.
