Plumbing the Depths of “Revolutionary Road”: Sam Mendes on Yates, Kate, and the Pressures of Awards Season

"The book is such a kind of cult classic," "Revolutionary Road" director Sam Mendes said of his new film's source material, Richard Yates' 1961 novel. "It was terrifying. The most common comment from friends of mine who had read the book was, 'don't fuck it up.' That was basically all they said, 'don't fuck it up.' And the biggest compliment I get now is, 'thank fuck you didn't fuck it up.' That's all I get! Thank god I didn't fuck it up." Audiences will get a chance to decide for themselves as the Golden Globe nominated "Road" opens in limited release this Friday
