Raw Revolutionary Road

"In 1950s Connecticut, two suburbanites become increasingly dissatisfied with their marriage and society's expectations of conformity. Based on the novel by Richard Yates. Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Kathy Bates, Michael Shannon, Kathryn Hahn" -EW.COM 
I love it when a movie  "goes there" and by "there" I mean right for the open wound. Revolutionary Road does just that and as painful as it is to watch, you can't look away. Much like George and Martha in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Frank and April tear each other to shreds. Check it out tonight at 8 on AMC. Here's the trailer. 


Post Snark: As a single person, I like to think that all marriages are filled with this much anguish and strife. Makes me feel better.
