Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 05/16/1997
"...Judy Davis seems to come by her screen intensity naturally....She's scored an unequivocal personal triumph playing a lifelong political firebrand..."
Variety - 08/05/1996
"...[A] conceptually bold satirical comedy-drama....Lots of fun. Duncan displays a sure comic touch..."
New York Times - 05/01/1997
"...An assured, brazen style....It manages to be irreverently funny despite a subject that is no laughing matter..."
Entertainment Weekly - 05/09/1997
"...Casual sophistication and wiggy Australian self-awareness give this product of unreconstructed bourgeois decadence its idiosyncratic charm..."
Los Angeles Times - 05/01/1997
"...Providing REVOLUTION's driving force is the whirlwind Judy Davis, who brings her trademark intensity and sense of humor to full boil here..."

Product Description:

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.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Children Of The Revolution
This outrageous comedy won outstanding critical acclaim for its wild humor and award-winning cast of stars! After a mad, passionate fling on a whirlwind trip to Moscow, party girl Joan Fraser (Judy Davis -- ABSOLUTE POWER) returns home pregnant. And when little Joe is born, everyone wonders who "Daddy" is! Soon, the ball starts rolling on a hilarious sequence of events that includes a clueless husband (Academy Award(R)-winner Jeffrey Rush, Best Actor -- SHINE), a lovesick double agent (Sam Neill -- JURASSIC PARK), and even Joseph Stalin (Academy Award(R)-winner F. Murray Abraham, Best Actor -- AMADEUS). Get ready for nonstop laughs in the madcap, all-star comedy that takes a wild look at the ultimate party animals!
