To go by this just-released trailer, The Reader, it would seem, is a reasonably strong acting-honors thing for Kate Winslet because she plays someone who sharply defines herself in terms of emotional need (i.e., an affair with a younger guy) and by being a good Nazi guard. Whereas in Revolutionary Road she’s playing a ’50s surburban wife beset by Cheeverish ennui and struggling with despair. It’s the difference between declaration and guilt vs. aspiration and lament.
