Titanic's "Jack and Rose" reunited! (Leo and Kate in a new movie)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0959337/

The movie is Revolutionary Road, and it is set in the 1950's. Leo and Kate are a young married couple, with problems. Sounds like a straight-forward drama of real life, which is always nice to see - compared to the unreality of what Tom Cruise does these days, I'm glad to see Leo still doing "People-Movies."

Way to connect a Tom Cruise bashing in a completely unrelated thread!

I'm also glad to see a down-to-earth drama unlike the unreality that Lucas continues to produce.

Sam Mendes directing a "down to earth" drama featuring Winslet and DiCaprio?

This one just sky-rocketed to one of my highly anticipated films of next year. I've got full faith in Winslet for such roles, but it'll be interesting to see how ole' Leo tackles a downshift persona instead of his full-throttle roles in Aviator, Departed, and Blood Diamond. Nonetheless, I've got high expectations for this one.

The novel itself, Wiki article, was nominated as one of the Top 100 English language books from the 20's to the present. It's from author EDIT: Richard Yates. So, the source material promises a quality story.

Mendes is a decent director, and Leo and Kate are awesome actors, so I'm there.

What's with similarly titled films in the same calendar year, though? last year we had "The Good Shepherd" and "The Good German", in 2008 we're gonna get "Revolutionary Road" and "Reservation Road"

They could always make a double-feature and call it "The Good German Shepherd".

Very true. First mistake was some kind of weird name misplacement in my head. Second was a legit screw-up on a misreading. Post corrected.
