A key time in history well portrayed. - Reds review by TE

Spoiler Alert
17/04/2018

This is a story of intrinsic interest, and Beatty's direction does a worthy job of covering some of the main aspects.

The period evocation is good, and Diane Keaton is on fine form. Even Jack Nicholson manages to give an appropriately restrained performance.

If anything the film tries to cover too much ground, timewise and location-wise. This tends to happen at the expense of depth of characterisation, but it's not hard to see why Beatty won an Oscar for his directorial role.
