Revolutionary Road (15-Dec-2008)

Director: Sam Mendes

Writer: Justin Haythe

From novel: Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates

Keywords: Romantic Drama

Film adaptation of a Richard Yates novel follows a young post-World War II Connecticut couple's struggles with life, love, and raising their two children.

ABSTRACT
April and Frank Wheeler, a Connecticut couple entering the seventh year of their marriage in a New York City exurb, entertain an existence that is anything but the idyllic image they project on the surface, as April struggles with her deferred dreams of becoming an actress and Frank loathes his well-paying yet hopelessly boring job. Revolutionary Road follows our unhappy couple as they struggle with life, their two young children, and possible redemption in the form of April proposing a move to France to take a lucrative job offer that would enable Frank to follow his passions outside of the confines of his current line of work.
