Here is a movie that I would not take a girlfriend or wife to. After watching this trailer you will see why. It is one of those movies that could really bring out a heated discussion if the relationship is a bit rocky. It doesn't look like it will help the situation, thats for sure. But, all we have is the trailer i don't know what the outcome of the film is but knowing the kind of movies Sam Mendes makes its not going to be a happy ending. The movie stars Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet.

April and Frank Wheeler are a young, thriving couple living with their two children in a Connecticut suburb in the mid-1950s. Their self-assured exterior masks a creeping frustration at their inability to feel fulfilled in their relationships or careers. Frank is mired in a well-paying but boring office job, and April is a housewife still mourning the demise of her hoped-for acting career. Determined to identify themselves as superior to the mediocre sprawl of suburbanites who surround them, they decide to move to France where they will be better able to develop their true artistic sensibilities, free of the consumerist demands of capitalist America. As their relationship deteriorates into an endless cycle of squabbling, jealousy and recriminations, their trip and their dreams of self-fulfillment are thrown into jeopardy.

The movie looks like it was made well, the acting looks fantastic, but the subject matter is what will kill it for the genral audience. It looks like a movie that will depress the hell out of ya. So if you are in the mood to get depressed then by all means go check it out!
