I have seen both films - twice - over recent months in the case of The Reader, an early rough-cut version and this week a nearly completed film and they represent an actress at the height of her considerable powers. In Revolutionary Road, based on Richard Yates's novel about being trapped in post-war Fifties suburbia and a marriage that crumbles before our eyes, Kate plays April, a woman who tries to hide the growing awareness that there will be no American dream for her. It's the first time she has worked with Sam directing her, and several great moments stick out, including one which shows, devastatingly, how her marriage to DiCaprio's Frank has withered. The scene is made even more powerful because DiCaprio has to smash a chair in his rage and despair. Kate says she told her co-star to go for it. It just went flying.
