I’ve tried to watch this movie twice before but it’s a kinda a slow start and I gave up. I’m glad I finally watch it to the end! It’s a good story that touches on sexism in the left, the Bolshevik revolution, socialist activity in the US, left in fighting, and the problems with the Bolshevik state. All through the lens of a compelling love story. The love story is the main focus of the film but the revolutionary activity is more than just a background as it has been in a few other films.

Warning: It is long. ~3 hours.

4 stars!
