Red Joan

Director: Trevor Nunn
Starring: Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Tom Hughes
Duration: 101 min


Judi Dench stars in Trevor Nunn’s drama inspired by the extraordinary true story of the KGB’s longest-serving British agent.

Joan Stanley’s tranquil retirement in rural England is shattered when she’s arrested by MI5. Why? She’s been hiding an incredible past: she’s one of the most influential spies in living history.

Rewind to Cambridge University in the 1930s, and the young Joan (Cookson), a demure physics student, falls intensely in love with a 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.

Years later, while 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? RED JOAN is the taut and emotional retelling of one woman’s sacrifice in incredible circumstances.

Contains moderate sex and suicide references.
