Dir: Trevor Nunn | UK | 2018 | 101 mins
Cast: Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Stephen Campbell Moore, Tom Hughes
Judi Dench gets a rewardingly complex role in British theatre director Trevor Nunn’s well-crafted historical thriller. Inspired by the life of British KGB agent Melita Norwood, it casts Dench as Joan, a seemingly unremarkable retiree until she’s charged with providing intelligence to Russia during the Cold War. In flashbacks, we revisit Joan’s younger self (Sophie Cookson) as she becomes politicised and begins to consider betraying British secrets. Seamlessly transporting the viewer into the past, Red Joan feels topical in a time of new threats to the West from Russia and explores the intimate effects of espionage on an individual life, bolstered by excellent performances from both Dench and Cookson.
