Revolutionary Road

Kate Winslet has been robbed of a completely deserved Academy Award nomination for best actress for this motion picture.

Very, very tough emotionally. Maybe too close to home for me right now. A couple get sucked into suburbia, child-bearing and rearing and a mindless corporate career, when what they had promised one another was that they would feel life deeply -- and move to Paris. Kate Winslet's character scarily reminded me of myself in some ways. Haunting score by Thomas Newman. Subtle, understated palette.

Very, very sad. Highly recommended, if you can go there.
