In his adaptation of Richard Yates's acclaimed novel Revolutionary Road director Sam Mendes returns to the darker side of suburbia and what lies behind the white picket fence. Every detail in this 1950's period piece is beautifully observed and Winslet's performance is flawless. The youngest actress to recieve 6 Oscar nominations, she has earned 9 Golden Globe and 7 BAFTA nominations to date, winning the Best Actress Golden Globe for Revolutionary Road and an Academy Award for Best Actress in the same year for The Reader.

 "Kate Winslet really is outstanding. Her confident and harrowing performance dominates and animates this film, while creating a slight emotional asymmetry at its core. Her face, so powerful in its impassivity, yet with unreadable hints of fear and anger, has something massive and monumental about it up on screen, like the sculpted form of a Roman empress. Revolutionary Road is a deeply felt, moving and genuinely tragic study of a marriage tearing itself apart."

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian Jan 2009
