Revolutionary Road's Beautiful Black and White Photo Shoot
There's something about Revolutionary Road that really fascinates me. No, it's not that Kate and Leo are back together, it has to do with the story and tone of the film. Something about it just really feels genuine. Along those lines, a few photos from a beautiful photo shoot for the film have popped up over on Kate Winslet Fans (via Awards Daily), and I thought they were worth sharing today. The film is set during the 1950's and these photos have an authentic look to them with the black and white tones and wonderful composition. I also just love the presence of both Winslet and DiCaprio - they're a perfect fit for this.
The first trailer didn't garner too much buzz, but I've heard some great things from acquaintances who have seen the actual film. If you're curious to dive into the luscious world of the 1950's, apparently the book is fantastic as well. It's described by NY Times critic Richard Ford as "American Beauty (Circa 1955)."
Revolutionary Road is directed by Oscar winning director Sam Mendes, of American Beauty, Road to Perdition, and Jarhead previously. The screenplay was written by Justin Haythe, of The Clearing previously, and is based on a book of the same name written by legendary author Richard Yates. Paramount is debuting Revolutionary Road in limited theaters starting on December 26th later this year.

Will there be another trailer released any time soon? Because I agree, the first trailer wasn't very exciting, but I'm still very interested in seeing this film. I'd like to see a new trailer though.

They really look good together and I love the classic style of the '50s. Great pictures.

I don't like the trailer. April should be an attractive, beautiful and young housewife, like Betty in Mad Men. Kate is a good actress, I like her performance in Jude, but here, she is simplely too old and too fat.

Above comment: Kate Winslet is gorgeous, and Im pretty sure she could play any role, not matter what it was, and not disappoint. I'm also pretty positive she's in her early 30's....which is not old..and she's definitely not fat. She's an incredible actress, and I know she's gonna be incredible in this movie. I have no doubt she'll at least get an Oscar nomination, maybe a win.
