Revolutionary Beauty

I haven’t seen it yet, but it appears Sam Mendes has made American Beauty 2 and called it Revolutionary Road, a movie based on a 1961 book of the same name. I’m surprised Lee Siegel got through this entire article without mentioning Mad Men once. While Don Draper doesn’t overtly hate the suburbs, he appears to hate everything they represent.

2009 should be a big year for Revolutionary Road on unlikelywords as I have this post, I’ve got the book to read, and want to see the movie.
