This movie was aired on TV. I was excited to watch the Titanic duo Leonardo and Kate once again in this movie. This is a slow movie about a suburban family living a usual boring life with children. They suddenly realize they gotta do something to get rid of that boredom and plan to settle in Europe. Leonardo's acting is awesome, though I love his acting in all his movies.
Apart from the actors, the movie is sad. Showing a married couple with two kids, living in a beautiful house and still finding life to be boring and empty is something I couldn't digest. I heard of many friends saying that professional life becomes boring after some point of time. I guess its true now with the married life as well. Maybe everyone needs to be put effort to bring the joy and fun in their married life. Everything in life needs working on. Kate Winslet dying at the end made me sad.
I m tired of thinking in positive terms with life these days. I guess we should not expect anything in life. I mean there should not be any expectations from anyone, either positive or negative. Take everything that comes at that moment and decide the course of action. In this movie, the couple had lot of expectations from their life. They wanted a life with all the wishes fulfilled, happiness around and change.
Well I m still learning not to have any expectations from anyone and live peacefully. Its a little difficult to teach our heart these kind of matters :P
On the whole Revolutionary Road is a good movie and watch it with open mind!!!
