A tour-de-force of epic filmmaking set against the American War of Independence. Al Pacino heads a stellar British/American cast (Nastassja Kinski, Donald Sutherland, Joan Plowright, Steven Berkoff, Dexter Fletcher, Annie Lennox) in this definitive version of Hugh Hudson's powerfully unsentimental film. Since its original release in 1985, director Hugh Hudson (Chariots of Fire) and Al Pacino have returned to the film, making several changes including the addition of a voice-over for Pacino’s character.
Epic in scale and execution, Revolution follows the fortunes of single father Tom Dobb (played with dogged resilience by Al Pacino) as he fights to protect Ned, his only son, against the violent course of history. Superb performances, breathtaking set pieces and a poignant score by John Corigliano, played by the National Philharmonic Orchestra, combine to produce an uncompromising evocation of the chaos and squalor of war.
