A sneak preview to the Paramount Vantage drama, "Revolutionary Road", has been let out. Courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, the video reveals footages displaying Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as a couple once again after their previous pairing up in 1997's James Cameron "Titanic". It also explains what the two have to deal with in the Sam Mendes-directed film.
Adapted from Richard Yates' 1961 novel of the same name, "Road" resolves around Frank and April Wheeler. Though on the surface their marriage looks to be just fine, behind it lurks a creeping frustration at their inability to feel fulfilled in their relationships or careers.
Frank despises his corporate job and runs to liquor and affair with co-worker, while his wife, April, mourns the demise of her dream to be an artist. As they deal with their personal problems, their relationship deteriorates and they fall into an endless cycle of bitter arguments and jealousy.
Supported by Michael Shannon, Kathy Bates, Kathryn Hahn, Zoe Kazan and David Harbour, the film is scripted by Justin Haythe. Produced by Mendes along with John Hart, Scott Rudin and Bobby Cohen, it will make its way to the big screen on December 26, 2008.
