Sam Mendes' 1950s-set suburban drama doesn't quite work in these credit-crunched times.

Leonardo DiCaprio has a secure, well-paid job as a New York executive; he has long liquid lunches followed by afternoons in bed with his secretary; and then he goes home to a mansion across the road from acres of unspoilt woodland, where Kate Winslet and his two adoring children are waiting for him with a birthday cake... and we're supposed to feel sorry for him?
