Red Joan

Academy Award winner Judi Dench takes on the complex persona of a seemingly demure physicist who was also a long-serving British spy for the KGB. Loosely inspired by the biography of British KGB agent Melita Norwood and sharply scripted by Lindsay Shapiro, Red Joan is a historical drama that reminds us that spies aren’t always shadowy, nefarious figures.
