Older Joan says history has proven her right and she takes partial credit for helping to ensure peace. First off, this logic seems faulty.
Secondly, there were numerous incidents that almost brought the U. The biggest problem with Red Joan is how shockingly boring it all is.
A young woman pulled into espionage and treason, having to maintain her secrets while they eat away at her and she betrays her colleagues and loved ones, that's the stuff of complex human drama, or at least it should be if the storytelling knows what it's doing.
The movie never seems to treat what she's doing with great stakes. Here's an example of how rushed and under developed the story can be: scene 1 Joan learns her co-worker doesn't have a great marriage; scene 2 they complete a crossword together and he nudges closer; scene 3 they kiss and he declares his love for her.
This sequence of events is portrayed during a travel montage or all things. The characters are so underwritten and their compromises and conflicts rarely feel real because of moments like this.
The acting is generally good all around and I wish Cookson would get a starring vehicle worthy of her talents. The biggest mystery for me with Red Joan is that the story depicted onscreen is made up, diverging from the real events, so why didn't they tell a better story with their freedom?
Nate's Grade: C. Nate Z Super Reviewer. Nov 16, This story had the potential to be a sharp historical account of the development of the atomic bomb in the s, if it had focused on interesting science, politics and espionage.
The scenes with present-day Joan and her son deliver most of its substance and the key facts. The young Joan was inventing the bomb, a member of a secret wartime team of scientists, and she was also a Russian spy.
However, the film treats her less as a cool head, and more as a slave to romance. Compare The Imitation Game - in this film, we needed greater details of 'the quickest mind in atomic physics'; and how she operated.
Just as in life she was apparently treated as though she were invisible, or the tea lady, so the film skates over her importance.
Even then, the romances are patchy, the sex scenes embarrassing. The other Russian spies are exceptionally beautiful, charismatic and glamorous; who would not have picked them out?
Logical threads get fuzzy, the screenplay and editing jump around, with key plot devices introduced towards the end.
People looking for a period piece will enjoy the lavishly produced English scenes, cars and clothing, plus hairstyles. People who want an insight into the events will get some.
To understand Joan herself, you have to wade through all the padding, while it's the scenes with Dench that deliver the essence of the story.

Start your review of Red Joan. Based on the real life story of Melita Norwood, an eighty seven year old woman who was unmasked as the KGB's longest serving British spy in , this is a flawless novel.
Joan Stanley is a loving grandmother, living quietly in the suburbs, but she has a dark secret and it is about to come and haunt her.
When she reads of the death of her old acquaintance Sir William Mitchell, she realises "they" have finally come for him, after all these years.
If they came for him, they will come for her and, Based on the real life story of Melita Norwood, an eighty seven year old woman who was unmasked as the KGB's longest serving British spy in , this is a flawless novel.
If they came for him, they will come for her and, indeed, she is soon arrested and interrogated by MI5.
This novel swops effortlessly between the present, and Joan's interrogation, and flashbacks to her earlier life and her meeting with exotic Sonya Galich at Cambridge in We read of Sonya and her cousin, Leo, a known communist sympathiser.
Joan is a naive young girl, but a totally sympathetic character. Everything that happens to her is realistic, from her crush on Leo to her wartime work in atomic research, working with Professor Max Davis.
Throughout the entire book, Joan has a very personal viewpoint - good and bad, individual responsibility and love for the people she knows.
One of the most poignant relationships is actually between Joan and her son, Nick, and her guilt at disrupting his life and her desire to protect him.
In the end, you feel Joan may have been misguided, guilty or innocent, but she is basically a good person.
This is a moving and intelligent book, beautifully written and totally believable. It would be an excellent, thought provoking novel for reading groups and I recommend it highly.
I loved, loved, loved this novel. The spy thing provides the background but this is the story of one woman's life which shows us what made her the person she was.
We see her as a daughter, a best friend, a lover, a scientist, a wife and a mother This is a very well-structured novel with excellent characterisation.
Clearly very well researched. It examines the nuances of motivation and conscience. Great stuff. Highly recommended. Jan 27, Morgan rated it liked it.

Retrieved 12 May Arrested some 50 years after the events, she, when questioned, reflects on those long lost days when as a promising physics student at Cambridge in she becomes romantically involved with a fellow student, a communist sympathiser.
After her graduation, Joan young-Joan Sophie Cookson secures a position as an assistant in a weapons research facility where she becomes intricately in the development of a nuclear weapon.
When now developed the bomb is used by the Americans to end the war in Japan Joan becomes troubled by the vast destruction and loss of life caused by the device.
She is approached by her once romantic link to share the secrets of the weapon so Russia could be equal to the west. Joan at first rejects the request, after all, she'd signed the official secrets act, and couldn't betray the trust placed in her.
However, eventually, she does pass on imperative information enabling communist Russia to develop the weapon. Joan saw it, not as betrayal, but, by evening things up, preventing further use of the deadly weaponry As always, perhaps one of the best actresses that ever graced the screen, Judi Dench as the elderly Joan is superb.
Anyone hoping to enjoy a Judi Dench outing may be disappointed. The viewer knows little more about Joan than at the outset, a shame as minutes of blank screen would be every bit as educational and marginally more entertaining.
Although she seems pleased to be included in the production and brings her best stage school over-animated buoyancy, Cookson's portrayal does not bring the viewer an understanding of Joan, but rather imprints a pretty unlikeable character lacking in dimension.
A wasted opportunity, since five minutes reading about Melita Norwood the real life character on which Red Joan is based on Wikipedia is more illuminating, more satisfying and, as a bonus, leaves 96 minutes banked.
Really enjoyed this. Switching from Joan's present day, explaining who she was and how her past during the 2nd World War has caught up with her.
The scenes of younger Joan in the 40's are exquisit. Fabulously historicly accurate period portrayals and styles. The story is very compelling.
Well layed out storyline and 1st class acting. Based on real people and events, the research has been very thorough. Though I would suggest it may have been as good if not better as a TV mini series.
Fleshing out some of the more intrcate and intimate details. Non-the-less, its production value and direction is superb.
Not surprising as Trevor Nunn is involved.
