Kate and Leo Minus the Iceberg

September 22, 2008

We all fell in love with Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio (or at least the iceberg that ended their affair and our suffering) in Titanic eleven years ago, and now that duo is back in Revolutionary Road. Director Sam Mendes, the director of American Beauty, tells the story of a couple living the great American life in the '50s -- the only problem is, it's the life neither of them ever wanted to live.

Both of these stars have grown a lot in the past decade and have many films under their belt. I expect this to be a visually interesting portrait of 1950s America, and a chance for Winslet and DiCaprio to connect with a more mature demographic.
