Revolutionary Road

Synopsis: It's 1955. Frank and April Wheeler, in the seventh year of their marriage, have fallen into a life that appears to most as being perfect. They live in the Connecticut suburbs with two young children. Frank commutes to New York City where he works in an office job while April stays at home as a housewife. But they're not happy. April has forgone her dream of becoming an actress, and Frank hates his job - one where he places little effort - although he has never figured out what his passion in life is. One day, April suggests that they move to Paris - a city where Frank visited during the war and loved, but where April has never been - as a means to rejuvenate their life. April's plan: she would be the breadwinner, getting a lucrative secretarial job for one of the major international organizations, while Frank would have free time to find himself and whatever his passion. Initially skeptical, Frank ultimately agrees to April's plan. When circumstances change around the Wheelers, April d

one goddamn time.

I know I'm not the wrong here.

Christ, I wish youd

stayed home tonight!

You know what you are,

whe you are like this, April?

Youre sick.

I really mean that.

Youre sick!

And you know

what you are?


- Youre disgusting.

- Oh yeah?

You don't bully me, Frank.

Just because youve got me

safely in this little trap,

you think you can bully me

into feeling whatever you want!

- In a trap! You in a trap!

- Yeah. Yeah.

- Jesus!

- Me, Frank. Me!

Don't make me laugh.

Pathetic so xxx little boy.

Look at you!

Look at you and tell me,

how by any stretch of the imagination

you can call yourself a man!



Oh, Jesus Christ!

Dont look at me like that, April.

Could we please go home now?

Daily News.

Daily News.

Yes, thanks, sir.

Daily News.

Thank you.

Fifteenth floor.

Im going to need your help

this morning, Old Scout.

For the next few hours, youre to

warn me of Bandys every approach

and you may need to shield me

from public view in the likely event

that avoid my stomach.

Its that bad.

Morning, Jack.

Nothing good about it,

I assure you.

Of course, I knew the moment you stepped

off the train what you were looking for...

A small remodeled barn,

or a carriage house.

And I just hate to be

the one to tell you

that sort of thing just isnt

available anymore...

But I dont want you to despair.

There is one place up here

I wanna show you...

Now of course it isnt very

desirable at this end.

As you see,

Crawford Road is mostly these little

cinder-blocky, pick-up trucky places.

Plumbers, carpenters,

little local people of that sort.

But eventually...

Eventually it leads up

to Revolutionary Road,

which is much nicer.

Now, the place I want to show you,

is a sweet little house

and a sweet little setting.
