Sam Mendes - Revolutionary road

This movie, based on the novel by Richard Yates, is just plain fantastic! I sat starring unable to move several times during the movie.

It's about how youthful appetite for life crumbles as you get older and start prioritizing safety over life. And how you can end up in a situation unable to fulfill your dreams if you don't watch out. Well, there are many more things to be said, but you'd better see it! Whatever you do, watch out for the suburbs! ;)

It's a beautiful movie in every aspect. It is set in the USA in the 50s and the style in just great, everything looks good, tasteful. The plot is still very much valid - how we give up life for work and start dying...
