Plot Of The Movie
The movie is set back in the 1940s. Frank Wheeler (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a longshoreman and April (Kate Winslet) is a wannabe actress. They get married and move to the 115 Revolutionary Road in suburban Connecticut, and become close friends with their neighbours, who think of them as the perfect couple. However, only the couple knows that their marriage is troubled. By now, they also have a child. April fails as an actor and Frank is still struggling to find his passion. So, they decide to move to Paris to start their life anew. Meanwhile, Frank gets promoted and April is pregnant again, and they are forced to stay back. Soon, Frank finds out that April is contemplating for an abortion, and it leads to a heated argument between the two to such an extent that April calls their first child "a mistake". What follows next is a series of chaotic and disastrous series of events that bring a tornado in the life of the couple.
