Red Joan

  TOM HUGHES JOINS
JUDI DENCH IN ‘RED JOAN’
Judi Dench will play Britain’s oldest spy in RED JOAN! She will be joined by Victoria‘s Tom Hughes as the KGB’s longest serving spy in Britain. The film takes place in two eras. In a picturesque village in England, Joan Stanley lives in contented retirement, hiding her incredible past as one of the most influential spies in living history. Suddenly her tranquil existence is shattered as she’s shockingly arrested by MI5. Flashback to Stanley as a 1930s Cambridge physics student (Sophie Cookson) who falls in love with seductively attractive Russian saboteur, Leo (Tom Hughes). 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. After the war, she works at a top-secret nuclear research facility and 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?

The film is based on a 2013 Jennie Rooney book
