  • A blindly idealistic Australian Communist believes so fervently in the Revolution that she writes weekly love letters to Joseph Stalin, conceives his child (or so she believes), and raises a son in the tradition of iron-fisted tyranny. A scathing, idiosyncratic satire of ideological zealotry in general, comprising straight narrative, newsreels and archival footage, and farcical comedy.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...[A] conceptually bold satirical comedy-drama....Lots of fun. Duncan displays a sure comic touch..."

    "...An assured, brazen style....It manages to be irreverently funny despite a subject that is no laughing matter..."
    New York Times

    "...Casual sophistication and wiggy Australian self-awareness give this product of unreconstructed bourgeois decadence its idiosyncratic charm..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...Judy Davis seems to come by her screen intensity naturally....She's scored an unequivocal personal triumph playing a lifelong political firebrand..."
    USA Today

    "...Providing REVOLUTION's driving force is the whirlwind Judy Davis, who brings her trademark intensity and sense of humor to full boil here..."
    Los Angeles Times
