Dame Judi Dench is back, and the Crandell has her. In a picturesque village in England, Joan Stanley (Dench) lives in contented retirement. Suddenly her tranquil existence is shattered when she’s shockingly arrested by MI5, for Joan has been hiding an incredible past: she is one of the most influential spies in living history…

“A taut old-school thriller with a modern heroine.” — Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
“While Joan’s early years are absolutely fascinating, it is the refreshing concept of Dench’s elderly communist agent that gives this drama its real bite and edge.” — Mark Adams, Daily Mirror (UK)
“Trevor Nunn’s Red Joan is a reflective romantic drama with an engaging espionage twist.” — Tiffany Tchobanian, Film Threat
