Property for sale

Please don't ever let me buy a house on Revolutionary Road. Ever. Wow, what a powerful film - both affecting and effective.

Without giving away the story, it's basically about a couple who succumbs to a life that neither of them ever imagined for themselves. I blame it on suburbia but of course, there are many layers to the movie and the characters involved.

The acting is superb. Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kathy Bates are reunited again but this time, the only thing sinking is the lives of those involved.

I loved this movie for so many reasons but most of all, for its message - always be true to yourself.

I read the book and it was just as depressing if not more so.

That would be hell to like that.
