Revolutionary Road

Posted by lori . 2 Comments

Revolutionary Road is based on the book of the same name, written in 1961.  It looks at conformity in the 1950’s, but you will see that not much has changed and the subject matter is completely applicable today.  It deals with the hopes and aspirations of a suburbanite couple and looks at the price of giving up on our dreams.  Revolutionary Road can be an uncomfortable movie to watch, because it makes you consider things you’ve given up on and compromised in your life.  It is a tragic movie, but it beautifully captures a struggle we all must deal with.

    I still haven’t seen that one! It sounds really interesting though.

    Am I the only one still locked out of Blogger? When I go to sign into Blogger, it tells me it’s unavailable. I can’t sign in at all, much less find other blogs that I read!

      This movie was heartbreaking to me. If you do watch it, I would LOVE to hear your comments.

      I still can’t get on Blogger either.
