“I saw an advance screening of Revolutionary Road in Beverly Hills, CA this evening (December 14th). A Qu0026amp;A session followed the screening with Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Kathy Bates, Michael Shannon, Kathryn Hahn, and screenwriter Justin Haythe. Photos from the Qu0026amp;A are attached to this report.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRevolutionary Road is a story that you wonu0026#39;t be able to shake easily. The film will stick in your head and leave you to contemplate what has just happened on the screen before you. Richard Yates gives us the story of Frank and April Wheeler, the seemingly perfect suburbia couple. We soon find out their marriage is teetering on the edge of a collapse as they are overwhelmed by the fact that they have each made the wrong choices in their lives.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOnce again Kate Winselt and Leonardo DiCaprio come together with great chemistry, pulling the best out of each other. This is a heavy film with emotionally complex characters, Iu0026#39;m not sure I could think of any two actors that could pull off the roles of Frank and April Wheeler like Leonardo and Kate did.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Truth is usually in singular – Lies always come in plural.u0026quot; Iu0026#39;m not sure who said that, but it is a notion that sums up this film.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMichael Shannon shinned in his role as the clinically insane son of Kathy Bates character; John Givings. Bates and Shannon both deliver humorous scenes to this heavy storyline, although there are times when you see the sadness and desperation in their characters as well. Michael Shannonu0026#39;s character, John Givings, is the truth in this film. Although clinically insane, he can see through everyoneu0026#39;s lies and does the unthinkable; he forces everyone face their own truth.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI guarantee you will not be singing u0026quot;My Heart Will Go Onu0026quot; after seeing this film. But you wonu0026#39;t be disappointed with this little film gem.”
