Yup.. to begin with- i had a lot of expectation from DiCaprio and Winslet coming together again after their TITANIC days!! Ohh, but am i hardly moved by the film or its treatment by the Director? NOPE, am not. The film showcases the miserable lives of 1950s suburban couple caught between a life of their choice and a life which encumbers an American family with lost dreams, like any other. The plot tells us the tale of April and Frank Wheeler in 1950s suburban Connecticut, who dissatisfied with life, are willing to move to France to give their yearnings a second shot! The resultant outcome- a two hour long(uffffff..! imagine i sat thru' it) domestic battle scenes between howling Winslet and the hyper-talkative Caprio!! mann- where's that piece of chemistry? Did it sank with the Titanic too??
I somehow feel utterly miserable when April is led to take that chance to end her life- as she is largely let down by her husband to fulfil her life's aspirations! The film sheds happiness in favor of a cynical, treacherous slog toward anger, resentment, fear, loathing, and death (in both literal and figurative senses).
Towards the end of this hopeless boring film- you are merely left to wonder -Do you still want Revolution? Well, i want my money back :( What do you ??
