Must-watch: Revolutionary Road

Oh. My. God. This is one superb movie that gave me goosebumps. Watched it with Bubbles, Heidi, and Hye Kim Park last night.

Revolutionary Road is a glimpse into the life of a young couple in typical American suburbia in the mid-50s. It is about how much the family is willing to give up in order to realize their dreams. It is about challenging and breaking free from the trappings of the concept of a "normal" family.

The acting by Kate Winslet is astonishing. The costumes were resplendent. And the cinematography is top-notch. Gosh, gosh, gosh... I have to stop my self from effusing about my love for the movie.

Check this trailer instead (which uses Nina Simone's Wild is the Wind, one of my most favorite songs).

RR is one of the best films of 2008 I think. The critics, I'm amazed, are not getting it.

proof that kate winslet is one of the top actresses of her generation. too bad her "the reader" nomination made her performance in this movie ineligible for oscar's best actress.
