Dir: Trevor Nunn, 2018, UK, 110 mins.
With Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Tom Hughes, Stephen Campbell Moore.

Joan is an old woman living quietly in suburbia but she has a past that would surprise all that knew her, even her lawyer son.  When the Special Branch turns up on her doorstep accusing her of spying for the KGB her response is confusion and disbelief.  Gradually the story emerges, starting with her student life at Cambridge where she falls in love with charismatic Leo Galich.  All decisions from then on are a struggle between the head and the heart.
