Little Children

Little Children (Todd Field, 2006)

Although true at times, Little Children never compels as the story suffers from the same shortcoming as In the Bedroom: it is merely an actors’ showcase.

Revolutionary Road

Revolutionary Road (Sam Mendes, 2008)

In Revolutionary Road, DiCaprio and Winslet are well cast as the young couple on opposite journeys and Michael Shannon shines as their neighbour.
