Storyline

English born Joan Stanley, a Soviet and communist party sympathizer, becomes employed as a British government civil servant, and gets recruited by the KGB in the mid 1930s. She successfully transfers nuclear bomb secrets to the Soviet Union (Russia), which enables them to keep up with the west in the development of atomic weapons, and remains undetected as a spy for over a half a century.

Historical film worth viewing
25 September 2018 | by fbernausberraondoSee all my reviews

I've had the chance to see the film at the International Film Festival in San Sebastian and having Judi Dench right on the stage was a plus. The film is based in historical events and gets you hooked in and wondering all the time if what this girl did was right or not.
