Due to it's depressing subject matter, it's not really a film you can sit down and just flat out enjoy or be entertained that much from. It's not a film for everyone. If you are just looking to be entertained and have a good time seeing a film, I don't think I would recommend this. It's shows the stark brutal reality of an unhappy suburban couple. If your looking for a film that more than that, one that is filled with terrific performances, great cinematography and direction, then you should check this out sometime. It's a really well made film all around, but be warned, it may be a hard one to enjoy.

This is the movie I compare all horrible movies too. Such a POS movie that is the most depressing movie ever made (Blue Valentine is a very close 2nd). If you're into depressing relationships, those are for you! lol

Following the lives of a seemingly faultless couple, a rather quiet storyline grows louder with the exposure of each discoloured part of the twos shared unhappy life together. While they try their best to make the extraordinary mirage they live a reality, it proves unattainable. Amazingly expressive and emotional performances by DiCaprio and Winslet (atop other characters), per usual.
