No suspension of disbelief is too big an ask, no flight of the political imagination of a nation too bizarre, to be incorporated into the stunning vision of post-war Australia teetering on the edge of a Brave New World that is Children of the Revolution.
Few knew that Joseph Stalin spent his last night on the planet in the arms of a young Australian woman. Fewer still know that their love child brought Australia to the brink of civil war! All is revealed in Peter Duncan’s audacious first feature. a seriously funny drama revealing the incredible story of young Joe Jnr (Richard Roxburgh) and his passionately committed mother Joan Judy Davis), spanning two continents and five decades of Australian social history.
Featuring a brilliant cast including Sam Neill, Rachel Griffiths, Geoffrey Rush and F. Murray Abraham (as Joseph Stalin), Children of The Revolution swings from pop pastiche to a post-war history lesson, from moving drama to camp musical.
