REVOLUTION: THE DIRECTOR’S CUT (DVD & Blu-ray)
A film by Hugh Hudson
The film has an additional 21 minutes, and whether any of this features Annie Lennox we wont know until the film is released on the 18th June.
Al Pacino heads a stellar cast (Nastassja Kinski, Donald Sutherland, Richard O’Brien, Joan Plowright, and Annie Lennox) in this powerful and unsentimental depiction of the American War on Independence
Epic in scale and execution, Hugh Hudson’s (Chariots of Fire) film follows the fortunes of single father Tom Dobb (played with dogged resilience by Al Pacino) as he fights to protect his only son against the violent course of History. Superb performances, breathtaking set pieces and a poignant score by John Corigliano combine to produce an uncompromising evocation of the chaos and squalor of war.
