Red Joan – Trailer

The new trailer for the forthcoming drama Red Joan has been released. The Film, based of the Jenny Rooney’s novel of the same name, debuted at the 2018 Toronto Film festival and is set for a UK release in April.

The year is 2000 and Joan Stanley is living in contented retirement in suburbia at the turn of the millennium. Her tranquil life is suddenly disrupted when she’s arrested by MI5 and accused of providing intelligence to Communist Russia. Cut to 1938 where Joan is a Cambridge physics student who falls for young communist Leo Galich and through him, begins to see the world in a new light. Working at a top-secret nuclear research facility during WWII, Joan comes to the realisation that the world is on the brink of mutually assured destruction. Confronted with an impossible question – what price would you pay for peace? – Joan must choose between betraying her country and loved ones, or saving them.

At the head of the cast is the Judi Dench, Sophie Cookson, Stephen Campbell Moore and Tom Hughes. Direction comes courtesy of the acclaimed theatre director Trevor Nunn.

Red Joan will be in UK cinemas across the UK on 19 April 2019.
