Movie Info

Children of the Revolution is an Australian film whose cinematic roots go back to the sardonic comedies of Billy Wilder. It is set in two time periods, the 1950s and 1990s, and goes back and forth between them. In the 1990s, Australian politician Joe Welch (Richard Roxburgh) is having some serious difficulties. We learn just how serious they are through a series of interviews with important political commentators. Joe blames his mother, Joan Fraser (Judy Davis), for his problems. This claim

O'Sullivan expertly stitches together these two testimonies, linked yet separated by their differing experiences of the Palestinian cause.

A uniformly excellent cast, a good ear for background music and a strong visual style carry the film

Audience Reviews for Children of the Revolution

Fantastic! A great dark comedy about communism and it's side effects to a family in Australia. Hilarious! Wonderful performances by Judy Davis and Richard Roxburgh as mother and son.
