RED JOAN (Theatrical Release UK 2018)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

Red Joan—interesting but not the best of stories—tells a fictional account of a woman found guilty of espionage in passing atomic bomb development secrets to Russia post WW II. Judi Dench once again shows her outstanding acting abilities in the scenes in which she appears. The story is a rough watch that revolves around her romantic involvements more than her educational accomplishments. It seems rather demeaning for educated females as it demotes the female mind to romance rather than real academic accomplishment.
