Kate and Leo reunite for Revolutionary

Just like most romantics who adored Jack and Rose in the '90s, I cant wait to see Kate Winslet and Leonardo di Caprio reunited in Revolutionary Road, a film based on the Richard Yates novel. Im just as thrilled to learn that the chemistry between the two actors is undeniable even if it has been ten years since they teamed up for James Cameron's Titanic!

This time, Leo and Kate play Frank and April Wheeler, a young suburban couple in the mid-1950s who see themselves as different from their neighbors. April eventually fails at her dreams of becoming an accomplished thespian and moving to Paris when she stars in a terrible production, while Frank, though able to provide for his family well, is unsatisfied with his bland corporate job. On top of this, he later finds himself having an affair with a colleague as his marriage falls apart.

Interestingly, the director behind Revolutionary Road is Kate's husband Sam Mendes, who also directed American Beauty. Kate confessed that being directed on sex scenes by her husband was a very strange experience. "I just kept saying, 'This is too...weird,'" Winslet told Entertainment Weekly. "And Leo was like, 'Oh, get over it.' And I'm going, 'Yeah, a little reminder: You're my best friend. He's my husband. This is a bit weird.’"

Despite the "weirdness," however, Kate can't deny that they still have chemistry. "It's great to discover we can just slip right into it, like muscle memory," she said.

Leo, meanwhile, has nothing but praise for Kate. "She's definitely an adult now...it's great to catch up and it's ironic that we've grown up so much since that movie (Titanic) but we're still kind of the same people," he told Entertainment Tonight. "We just enjoy being around each other."
