    “One of the best films of the year”—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

    LEONARDO DICAPRIO & ACADEMY AWARD ® WINNER* KATE WINSLET REUNITE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON SCREEN IN ONE OF THE YEAR’S MOST CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED FILMS
    REVOLUTIONARY ROAD
    Cited As One of the Top Ten Movies of the Year By Dozens of Critics, Captivating Drama Debuts on DVD and Blu-ray June 2, 2009

    HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – “Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are brilliant” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) in the mesmerizing epic REVOLUTIONARY ROAD, arriving on DVD and Blu-ray June 2, 2009 from Paramount Home Entertainment. Nominated for three Academy Awards® and four Golden Globes®, the emotionally gripping film has been called “amazing” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), “flawless” (Rex Reed, New York Observer) and a “masterpiece” (Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle). Directed by Oscar® winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty) and adapted from the groundbreaking novel by Richard Yates, REVOLUTIONARY ROAD won Kate Winslet her first Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama. Reuniting DiCaprio and Winslet for the first time on screen since Titanic, the incisive portrait of a 1950s American marriage unfolds as an enthralling drama that is moving, thought-provoking and “a revelation” (Clay Smith, “The Insider”).

    The REVOLUTIONARY ROAD DVD and Blu-ray presentations include commentary by director Sam Mendes and screenwriter Justin Haythe, Lives of Quiet Desperation: The Making of REVOLUTIONARY ROAD and deleted scenes. The Blu-ray also includes Richard Yates: The Wages of Truth.
