Also I saw Revolutionary Road with my friend - and found it almost haunting. As she and I walked out of the cinema, we both looked at each other and agreed that after witnessing that film, we were never going to get married.
It was just such a shocking unveiling of the societal model of the 50's and how outward appearance mattered, and not much else. Whilst I love this period for the fashion and decor - I would never be able to endure such mundane societal expectations (women only good for cooking pie).
What is your opinion? Would you easily slot into the '50's housewife role?
