Frank comes downstairs after a very heated argument and - much to his surprise - April has breakfast waiting for him. She has forgiven him. Or so he thinks.
Sam Mendes' tale of domestic drama entails many betrayals. The most important being trust. April (Kate Winslet) believes Frank to have betrayed her trust. In fact she knows it. His promises of leaving their quaint and cozy existence on Revolutionary Road have all turned out to be lies.
What she is really about to do will rock his existence. Winslet's performance during this scene alone should have warranted her Best Actress Oscar. The way her eyes embody the solemness of the scene is beyond words. We know something is wrong, but we have no idea how bad.
