Kate and Leo Together Again, Not In Titanic 2

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio will be costarring as a romantic duo again, the first time they've teamed up since 1997's Titanic. Sam Mendes, who is married to Winslet, will direct. His notable directorial projects include American Beauty and Road to Perdition.

The film, called Revolution Road, is based on the 1961 Richard Yates novel about "post-war disillusionment." According to Variety:

[The story] follows a seemingly happy suburban couple with two children in the mid-1950s who find themselves caught between their true desires and the pressure to conform — with explosive consequences.

Oooh, explosive. Well, in Little Children, Kate Winslet aptly proved that she can play the disenchanted suburban housewife, and if American Beauty is any indication, Mendes has what it takes to do these bleak portraits of unsatisfying life in 'burbs. Leonardo can be amazing with the right director (i.e. The Departed), so here's hoping Mendes can bring out the best in him. I hope, too, that I can watch Kate and Leo without seeing Rose and Jack.

Beyond that they have fantastic chemistry, they are both incredible actors who rarely make bad choices when deciding which films to make. And that's saying a lot, given that Kate is married to a director. (I mean, you don't see her showing up in the fourth sequel from some terrible Vampire movie, do you?) I expect nothing but great things from this movie.

Wow, I am excited for this. I like the two of them together and they both deserve to show off their chemistry in a movie that hopefully won't look as painfully outdated in 10 years as Titanic does now.
