“ A good old-fashioned British spy thriller in the scientific mold of Enigma, with a bewitching female heroine played by the excellent actresses Judi Dench and (as her younger self) Sophie Cookson, Red Joan revisits the incredible real-life spy case of Melita Norwood... Based on the bestselling novel, Lindsay Shapero’s screenplay cleverly plays with the ostensible staidness of ordinary pensioner Joan Stanley, a woman in her 80s living a quiet suburban life who is abruptly arrested as a Soviet spy.’ - Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
