1961 novel, directed by English theatre and film director Sam Mendes (American Beauty, the forthcoming Away We Go). Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are the Wheelers, a truly modern couple whose lives are sustained for a time by love, cocktails and dreams of moving to Paris with their children. But their world is shattered by John (Michael Shannon), a brilliant young man with a learning disability, whose distinct talent is to tell the truth. This is a powerful portrait of the disillusionment characterising post-war American middle-class life.
