      The 2008 film “Revolutionary Road” reunited the two main characters of “Titanic”, Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio. I had thought that this film was going to be a rekindle of the flame that I saw in “Titanic” and something that would leave my heart melting. However, I had an assumption that this film would bring their love together as it had in “Titanic” when in actuality it did the exact opposite and left me feeling disappointed and sad about how

      the film played out.

      In this film, Kate Winslet’s (April) character is married to Leonardo DiCaprio (Frank), but their marriage is on the rocks. April had a dream of being a big time movie star, and she did not make it. She ended up marrying Frank and having two children with him and moving to the suburbs where they struggle to make ends meet. She is unhappy with her life, despite her husband and children she wants more. So much more in fact that she has an affair with her husband’s best friend (he had an affair on her too). When they resolve their marital issues, she becomes pregnant but wants an abortion for selfish reasons and instead of talking to her husband about it she does a home abortion kit and therefore becomes very ill. She is taken to the hospital and is pronounced dead, leaving Frank to raise their children on his own.

      I saw no real point to ...

      this film besides showing how an unhappy woman not only ruins her own life but those of her families as well by being unsatisfied with her life and wanting more and more out of it rather than being happy for what she already has. I thought the film to be very boring as well, aside from making me angry that this woman had no idea how lucky she was to have a family who loved her and supported her like
      so many people dream of having. All I took from this film is that April was just a selfish woman who was unsatisfied with life, and caused a horrible plot for the film.

      This movie left me disappointed because I was so looking forward to seeing Kate and Leo back together again in another film. And while they did a wonderful job in “Titanic”, I did not like what they did in this film and I would not recommend watching it.

This film went nowhere since the beginning. Due to the fact that they reunited these two marvelous actors, i thought the movie would be more, in the aspect of it having more meaning, substance, purpose and passion. The woman did not appreciate her life and what she had because she had resentment for all things given to her. Because what she really wanted she did not get, therefore she ruined all she had by cheating, they both ruined a good marriage in the end. And she pushed this man too hard to be someone he could not be, for her. I think that shows that both women and men have the capability if being cruel.
