This thriller from renowned British theatre director Trevor Nunn, casts Judi Dench in a rewardingly complex role as a retired physicist who late in life is revealed to be a long-serving spy for the former Russian KGB. Inspired by the life of British KGB agent Melita Norwood (known as the ‘granny spy’ when she was unmasked in the late 90s), the film follows Joan Stanley, a seemingly unremarkable and inconspicuous retiree who, in 2000, is living in a London suburb when she is arrested and charged. Red Joan explores both the intimate strangeness of espionage at large and its fascinating effects on an individual life, bolstered by excellent performances from both Dench and Sophie Cookson.
