Inspired by the extraordinary true story of Melita Norwood, Red Joan is the taut and emotional discovery of one woman’s sacrifice in the face of incredible circumstances. In a picturesque village in England, Joan Stanley (Academy Award® winner Dame Judi Dench), lives in contented retirement, until one day her tranquil existence is shattered when she’s shockingly arrested by MI5. Joan has been hiding an incredible past; she is one of the most influential spies in living history. Cambridge University in the 1930s, and the young Joan (Sophie Cookson), a demure physics student, falls intensely in love with a 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. Post-war and now 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?
