Movie Description
Director Hugh Hudson's REVOLUTION is a tale of the tumultuous American Revolution that vividly traces the war, from its violent beginnings in 1776, to the bloody and bitter victory in 1781 at Yorktown, as seen through the eyes of one footsoldier. Al Pacino stars as Tom Dobb, a simple, illiterate trapper who is swept into the war when his beloved son, Ned (Dexter Fletcher), joins the independence army. In an effort to protect his son, Tom joins up as well, and the father and son experience the brutal first battles together. What begins as a war that Dobb wants no part of, becomes a true fight for freedom when his son is captured and tortured by the British army. In rescuing his young son and nursing him back to health, Tom learns the precious price of freedom and takes up the fight with determination and bravery. He is aided in his mission by Daisy McConnahay (Nastassja Kinski), a young rebel from a family of upper crust New York Tories who joins the fight with idealistic hope and undaunting passion. Daisy follows the troops, offering food and comfort as they fight for freedom, becoming a spirited member of the rebel party. The hardships that the men face on the front are shown with unblinking accuracy. As the colonial farmers and tradesmen battle for their new land, the great spirit of the rebel army is captured in a rousing tribute to their unwavering fight for freedom.
