About This Movie

(by Wikipedia)
"American journalist John Reed (Warren Beatty) journeys to Russia to document the Bolshevik Revolution and returns a revolutionary. His fervor for left-wing politics leads him to Louise Bryant (Diane Keaton), then married, who will become a feminist icon and activist. Politics at home become more complicated as the rift grows between reality and Reed's ideals. Bryant takes up with a cynical playwright (Jack Nicholson), and Reed returns to Russia, where his health declines." 

The film was nominated for 12 Academy Awards and won three Oscars, including best director for Warren Beatty, best supporting actress for Maureen Stapleton, and best cinematography for Vittorio Storaro.
