"Revolutionary Road" trailer
Whatever I think about suburban suicide movies (especially doggerel ones by Sam Mendes), trailers are more about form than content, and this one is very moving. (Again, I'm a sucker for montages.)
I love near the end when you see Kate Winslet screaming and Leonardo DiCaprio covering his ears. And that voice! Nina Simone's creepy, androgynous voice. I wish I could have seen her live.
One comment about the content: I feel like the situation that the couple is in is hard to believe. Who would buy that house and expect it to be temporary? It makes no sense!
Also, check out the hilarious quote on the cover of the novel.
