Moviola - Red Joan

MoviolaMoviola at the Village Hall in Milborne Port presents Red Joan (cert 12A) (101 minutes) on Friday 25th October 2019. Joan Stanley (Judi Dench) is a widow living out a quiet retirement in the suburbs when, shockingly, the British Secret Service places her under arrest.

The charge: providing classified scientific information - including details on the building of the atomic bomb - to the Soviet government for decades. As the interrogation gets underway, Joan relives the dramatic events that shaped her life and her beliefs. The end credits reveal that Red Joanis loosely based on the real life case of Civil Servant Melita Norwood (1912 - 2005). She successfully passed classified information about the British Atomic program to the Russians in the 1940's & 50's. This was only discovered in 1992 by which time the Ministry of Defence declined to prosecute the then 80 year old.
