Movie Info

After organizing a successful campaign to prevent Australia from outlawing the Communist Party in 1951, activist Joan Fraser (Judy Davis) is invited by Joseph Stalin (F. Murray Abraham) to visit Moscow. During her trip, Joan sleeps with Stalin -- who dies the same night -- and also with spy David Hoyle (Sam Neill). Joan returns home pregnant and marries admirer Zachary Welch (Geoffrey Rush), but she remains unsure whether Stalin or Hoyle is the father of her son, Joe (Richard Roxburgh).

Audience Reviews for Children of the Revolution

  • Sep 29, 2007
    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.
