Revolutionary Road (2008) short review

My respect and admiration for Kate Winslet only grows as she takes on challenging and interesting roles like this one, in a story of a married couple (the husband played by Leonardo di Caprio) who deal with stifled ambitions in 1950s suburbia. Sad, interesting, subtle, dramatic. Lovely 1950s costumes.
