Based on the award-winning novel, Revolutionary Road follows the hopes and aspirations of the Wheelers, a young couple living in Connecticut. Entrapped under the social confines they so desperately tried to avoid, the Wheelers hatch a plan to leave Connecticut behind for the great unknown of Paris. But when the plan is put in motion, each spouse is pushed to extremes – one to escape whatever the cost, the other to save all that they have, no matter what the compromise.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mendes has made a troubling film that wrestles with big themes and touchy subjects, even if it is set in an overly familiar milieu.
Fresh: If Revolutionary Road had been filmed back in 1961, when the novel came out, it would have been timely and powerful.
Fresh: Bolstered by Thomas Newman's score, spot-on set design and the brilliant source material, "Revolutionary Road" is a darkly effective portrait of an Eisenhower-era couple who fall tragically short of reaching Camelot.
Rotten: It leaves you feeling voyeuristically sullied; scrubbing the blood out of your mental carpet, privy to something simultaneously indulgent and inconsequential.
Never thought these two actors could make another movie better than Titanic, but with this movie they proved me wrong! Master piece!
