Frank commutes to New York City where he works in an office job that he hates and has yet to figure out what his passion in life is. April is a housewife who forgoes her dream of being an actress. They are not happy. One day, April suggests that they move to Paris as a means to rejuvenate their life. Initially skeptical, Frank ultimately agrees to April's plan.

First off, if you think this is going to be Titanic 2, think again. Second, if you are looking for a wholesome family movie that will melt your heart, this isn't it. However, if you are willing to deal with a bit of stark reality - this is the movie for you. Great acting by both Kate and Leo and overall an excellent movie.

There was nothing wrong with the acting, but the movie itself was one of the most depression movies I have ever seen. It wasn't even particularly unique. Kind of boring, actually. I went into this with high expectations and ended up very disappointed.

the intense acting truly conveys the brutality for their situation, and the ending left me shocked and frozen, and elevated the movie somewhat that it did not end with the typical hollywood happily ever after.

A very confronting film. Kate Winslet is superb

this is an extroridnary piece of art... diffidult viewing for those born into the the 1950s but accurate reflection of the times. Easier to watch than trying to plough through Doris Lessing's reflections of the same period.

Well acted drama based on the lives of two suburbanites. As they turn from idealistic youths full of hopes and dreams into settled middle-aged couple, with life decisions getting in the way of their ideals, they see themselves becoming people they couldn't stand. Marriage, lives, sanity start to fall apart.

A good movie. Well done. Just not my flavor perhaps. Marriages, relationships, betrayal, jealousies, non-communicative individuals screaming with body language...ick.

A very good, albeit depressing, film with a fantastic score by Thomas Newman.
