Revolutionary Road (2008), dir. Sam Mendes"Do you?"
Does Tommy count? because I’d easily go with him, he was great. If I have to pick an even smaller character I guess I’d go with Cora, the little girl Jack danced with in third class. She was cute as a button.

I do really like the “Rose feels trapped” scene you mentioned. Kate Winslet was brilliant in it. I love how you can see the panic building up by the second and how she just rips everything out and throws it across the room. You can really feel her despair and anger. And the final moment when she looks at herself in the mirror, it’s heartbreaking to see the hopelessness in her eyes. I understand why it was deleted but personally I think that small scene would have been a better transition than abruptly cutting from the first class dinner to her running on deck because it gives us a better insight (at that point in the film) of how deep Rose’s depression is.
Because it was an emergency and she figured they would understand the gravity of the situation was undoubtedly more important than her love affair at that moment. Rose wanted to warn her mother because given her conversation with Thomas Andrews during their tour that afternoon, she knew there weren’t enough lifeboats on board. When she saw the ship crash into the iceberg and then walked by the crew who seemed extremely concerned about what just happened, she knew that if they had to evacuate, more than half the people were going to be trapped on the sinking ship left to die. Naturally, Rose didn’t want her mother to suffer such a fate so she went back to her room to notify her about the alarming situation but unfortunately it backfired. They took advantage of Rose’s consideration (and naivety) instead.
