Red Joan

United Kingdom, 2018 / 101 Mins

Director: Trevor Nunn

Starring: Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson

In a picturesque village in England, Joan Stanley, lives in contented retirement. Her tranquil existence is shockingly shattered as she’s arrested by MI5. For Joan has been hiding an incredible past; she is one of the most influential spies in living history…

Cambridge University in the 1930s, and the young Joan, a demure physics student, falls intensely in love with a seductively attractive Russian saboteur, Leo. Through him, she begins to see that the world is on a knife-edge and perhaps must be saved from itself in the race to military supremacy. Post-war and now working at a top secret nuclear research facility, Joan is confronted with the impossible: would you betray your country and your loved ones, if it meant saving them? What price would you pay for peace?

Inspired by an extraordinary true story, a taut and emotional discovery of one woman’s sacrifice in the face of incredible circumstances. A woman to whom we perhaps all owe our freedom.
