Screener Squad: Red Joan

Red Joan Movie Review


Welcome back to the RED SCARE as we review Red Joan! The story centers around the titular Joan (Judi Dench), a woman who after years of keeping her head down has been arrested by the British government on conspiracy charges. She had not only sold British secrets to foreign governments but she was the longest-serving KGB spy embedded within the British government ever. The story then follows her case as her nearly fifty years of espionage are explored in detail, including handing over nuclear weapon plans to the Soviets. Bradly, Lara, and Allen picked up this movie in their regular Screener Squad dead drop locations, but is this movie worth redacting or should it stay hidden in the vaults forever? Follow our trio as they uncover the truth and endure the never-ending well of Bradly’s communist puns!


Directed by: Trevor Nunn

Starring: Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Stephen Campbell Moore, Tom Hughes, Laurence Spellman
