Synopsis:
Frank (Leonardo DiCaprio) and April Wheeler (Kate Winslet) always see themselves as far-removed from the conventionality of suburbia. Yet that is exactly what creeps up on them when they buy a house in Connecticut. He toils 10 hours a day in a job he hates, while she, as a 1950s homemaker, yearns for fulfillment and passion. Rebelling against the torpor of their lives, the couple plan an escape that may push them to their limits.

Martin Tsai (Critic’s Notebook) Mr. Mendes at least has an idea what he should be going for even though he ultimately fails. Full Review
Simon Miraudo (Quickflix) There is not a shred of hope, light or even life in Mendes’ fourth film. Full Review
Jason Best (Movie Talk) Revolutionary Road’s portrait of a disintegrating marriage is so unflinching, so unsentimental, and so bleak, that you really need to be in a buoyant emotional state to get through the movie. Full Review
Will Leitch (Deadspin) Most of the way, the film feels more like a documentary about the couple than a corrosive study of either of them. Full Review
Kelly Vance (East Bay Express) These people are not tragic, they’re not even pathetic – they’re fountains of soap-opera profundities. Full Review
Dave White (Movies.com) From the director of American Beauty comes another empty, fake-meaningful tale of how rotten it is in the suburbs. Full Review
Matt Kelemen (Las Vegas CityLife) … far beyond deconstructing the man in the gray flannel suit. … [writer Richard Yates] explored ways we acquire and define our identities from people we love, and how we set our lives on self-deceptive and self-destructive courses. Full Review
R. L. Shaffer (IGN DVD) Revolutionary Road offers nothing you can’t see on TV, with more compelling narratives and better performances (save for Michael Shannon). Full Review
Roger Moore (Orlando Sentinel) Mendes has made a troubling film that wrestles with big themes and touchy subjects, even if it is set in an overly familiar milieu. Full Review
Kevin Carr (7M Pictures) The characters in this film are weak-willed, pathetic losers. I just couldn’t muster much sympathy for the characters that couldn’t burst out of the cages of their own design. Full Review
Sonny Bunch (Washington Times) Revolutionary Road is content to stick with hoary cliches about the emptiness of middle-class bourgeois life. Full Review
Fernando F. Croce (CinePassion) Middlebrow self-consciousness Full Review
Anders Wotzke (Moviedex) It’s hard to shake the feeling that this is merely a lesser rehash of Mendes’ more accomplished film American Beauty. Full Review
Dragan Antulov (Index.hr) jo%u0161 jedan primjer u dana%u0161njem Hollywoodu sve iritantnijeg %u017Eanra “dajte mi Oscar” filmov Full Review
Felix Gonzalez Jr. (DVD Review) It plays like Douglas Sirk without the irony. Full Review
John J. Puccio (Movie Metropolis) …more of a sedate lecture on values than a revealing or entertaining look at life and love. Full Review
Marty Mapes (Movie Habit) Can’t tell whether Mendes speaks through his characters or speaks about them Full Review
Keith Cohen (Entertainment Spectrum) Similar yet better domestic dramas that come to mind for comparison purposes include “In the Bedroom,” “Little Children” and “American Beauty.” Full Review
Maitland McDonagh (Miss FlickChick) Chilly and academic, thoroughly admirable but one step removed from the very real angst of a movie like The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit (1956). Full Review
Wesley Lovell (Cinema Sight) Suburban malaise has seldom been better looking or better acted. Full Review
