This month Steve and Emma discuss the Warren Beatty classic Reds. Released in 1981 - the height of Reaganism in America, this audacious film tells the story of John Reed and his wife Louise Bryant. 

Reed wrote the seminal Ten Days That Shook the World about the Russian Revolution and Bryant was an activist and feminist. This film tells their story and that of left-wing politics in the early part of the 20th century in America and Russia. 

If you're looking for some further reading, here is a link to the fantastic Vanity Fair article mentioned by Steve.
