Synopsis: Revolutionary Road
Frank (Leonardo DiCaprio) and April Wheeler (Kate Winslet) are a married couple in the 1950s. This couple sees themselves as special, different, prepared, and wanting to live their lives to a higher standard.
After Frank and April moved into a new house with their two children on Revolutionary Road, they said they no longer wanted the lack of activities in the suburbs around them and were determined not to be trapped by the social restrictions of that era.
Despite all their charm, good looks, and irreverence, the Wheelers find themselves a total stranger. Frank thinks of himself as a nice guy with a steady job who’s lost his nerve, only he hates his boring job.
Meanwhile, April, who failed to make a career in acting, feels she is an unhappy housewife and longs to get what she wants. How will this husband and wife deal with problems in their household, and in what way will they go through the conflicts they created themselves?
