Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jan 4th at 5:00 for Revolutionary Road at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Erin wearing a smile in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Adapted from the revealing novel by Richard Yates, Revolutionary Road is an incisive portrait of an American marriage seen through the eyes of Frank Wheeler (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his wife April (Kate Winslet). The couple proudly declare their independence from the suburban inertia that surrounds them and determine never to be trapped by the social confines of their era. Yet for all their charm, beauty and irreverence, the Wheelers find themselves becoming exactly what they didn’t expect: a good man with a meaningless job whose nerve has gone missing; a less-than-happy homemaker starving for fulfillment and passion; an American family with lost dreams, like any other. Yates’ story of 1950s America poses a question that has been reverberating through modern relationships ever since: Can two people break away from the ordinary without breaking apart? Co-starring Kathy Bates, Kathryn Hahn, Michael Shannon and David Harbour. Directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty).
