When their escape plans to get out of suburbia are shattered with the help of John Givings, played by Michael Shannon, their mirage of a perfect lifestyle takes a turn for the worst. This film serves as a warning to suburban husbands and wives. Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly, Richard Roeper, and Jonathon Crawford would all agree that Revolutionary Road is a dark, depressing film that constantly leaves you awestruck with its outstanding performances. Owen Gleiberman sums up Revolutionary Road as “lavishly dark.” He feels that Sam Mendes does a great job of adapting the 1961 novel by Richard Yates. In his review, Owen Gleiberman interprets the suburbs at Frank and April Wheeler live in a state of mind and a myth, not a place on the outskirts of the city: The suburbs are comfortable, maybe even beautiful, but their serenity is rooted in a friendly American conformity, so that the people who live there have to repress their true selves, which will emerge when they drink too much and have affairs, or rage at each other for their dishonesty, which was all caused in the first place by… the suburbs (Gleiberman).

All of these things can irritate even the best of drivers, and cause them to make poor decisions on the road. Aggressive drivers will always be on the highways. Rather than ignore the problem, though, we need to drive defensively for our own protection. One example of encountering a driver in a hurry would be the time I was waiting in the mall parking lot for a space to empty. Sitting there behind the car that was reversing out, I had my blinker on, signaling my intention of filling the spot.

The novel highlights the highs and lows of Sydney through Lavender’s and Valentines point of views. Valentines character has a heart which loves the old Sydney of the past. She contrasts with Harry Lavender, who loves Sydney, but as a city of the future.
The Life & Crimes of Harry Lavender uses the distinctive voice of Claudia to explore appearance Vs reality in the novel. The novel show that Claudia is the main character in the novel and the novel is written in Claudia's voice. Claudia shows that the appearance vs reality does exists in the novel, for example, when,"Claudia, she wandered around in Sydney, and she saw Sydney Tower that dazzled the city with fool's gold at sunset…. That is a metaphor and that quote means that, fool's gold is fake, attractive but worthless- Sydney is shiny but NOT pure, good, worthy.

This is the main source of air pollution that is causing the thick smog in the city. The water and waste pollution is more complicated as there are several factors at play. The cost of garbage collection has led to residents throwing trash in local rivers and streams, causing mass waste in and around the city.

The great amount of cars produces a constant noise, which gets worse at rush hours because of traffic jams. Time is also important when you live in a city.
