Red Joan is one of IFC, also known as the independent film channel where she is staged Trevor Nunn and Dame Judi Dench play Joan Stanley and she is indicted at the age of 80. I forgot the exact age of being a spy and betraying the UK because she was a KBG spy at the time.
I’m sure it took longer, but that was the only part they showed and that’s why she’s been trapped after all these years and can not really remember a lot of things The police ask her and what she’s accused of, but then the movie returns when we see her in college and how she interacts with the KBG Group that is located at the said college knows a lot about it, but I’m fascinated by spy espionage, which is even based on real spies, and espionage, which always fascinates me because you always think why someone would do that, why someone would risk his life to possibly be charged with one of the highest crimes one committed I would ever be charged with as a person why you want to so emotionally burden yourself. I do not know how anyone does it, but on the other hand, I’m not a spy, so I would not really know psychology But I love it when movies can explore that and be a really great character study because, in retrospect, she did something good.
I’m doing something bad thing and in some ways it was her, but then you know that she’s still high treason, so it’s such a really fascinating premise and of course Judi Dench is in her in that Judi Dench, that was one too Plus, that’s loosely based on a real-life story where it’s not the same name. It’s another name, but a spy who was charged with high treason in her 80s was not charged and she actually has it on her front yard reported whole news. Media I was a spy, so it’s based on a real thing, but this is a definitely fictional you know with the character names and the people associated with that story, so you know I did not watch any trailers – It’s kind of a blindfold and I can tell for sure that Red Joan is alright, it’s a good movie It’s the kind of movie you watch from start to finish and it’s really airy.
I do not really want to look at her again. It’s not bad, it’s not great, but it’s fine. It’s a usable movie, like Bare Bones filmmaking, acting writing, directing Bare Bones movies, but there are some bright spots to be sure of. One of the bright spots is Sophie Cookson, who plays the Red Joan Stanley. She’s phenomenal, as you know, we start getting out with her. In college, she’s the innocent person trying to improve her education and make some friends. She knows that she is very nice.
In the course of the film, she gets in contact with the wrong people. She begins to know that she is bound in a love triangle She really shows panic and fear in her face. She shows determination and this is almost like cold-heartedness when stealing this information. It’s a really great kind of transformative performance, so I have to win the Oscars, anything I’ll nominate, but that brings character to life on the page, as she did and so graceful is what makes the movie.
The Red Joan Stanley is unfortunately on the other side Judi Dench feels she is lying reading and she has not really given it to me So much for her performance, until, like in the last 10 to 15 minutes, she really starts showing a bit of lower abdomen, so to speak, to her performance, which is really good to see what the full range of her character looks like, but it does do not happen until its end. You have already lost interest in Judi Dench in the older self. This is a mistake of the story that I was not really interested in, understanding why she did what she did, getting her old, losing her memory, or not wanting to say because she is embarrassed, I understand all this, but there is no exploration of this character.
It’s just as if I somehow regret what I did and I did this and that and then you like it towards the end just as they tell the world, okay, that’s cool, but let’s go deeper dive in that we saw her younger, as if she was blinded by love she was At the time she was a bit naive hip, but she made some stupid decisions, but as she got older, we saw her remembered all these times, but that was it again. It’s a good story to show the modern Joan Stanley and then go back in time and somehow see how it all happened and how it works internally that I had no problem with it. I just wish they were a bit more immersed in the way of the older Joan Stanley and the amount of guilt that existed I just did not feel that we understood that, but you know that Judi Dench, like me, said, towards the end slightly better director of good music, good cinematography, good production designing costumes.
You’re good, you know it really captures Time and I love anything that has anything to do with costume or production design and really captures an era or a time, and even in terms of cinematography, there’s a slight glow that It’s timeless to know highlights of the past in this era and things that correlate with the costumes of production design, but I have to tell you that it’s basically what I’m doing nothing else from If the likes of film criticism are what I’ve already told you, if you like spy films or if you like spy movies, then give him a clock that you know she does not like, really getting into the movie and getting in The Meat the actual like spying up like maybe like an hour in and it’s just an hour and forty minutes so it takes a while to get started and it’s alright until I get a little better at z is not it boring if you are interested in this kind of story or if you are interested in this kind of character piece for Judi Dench? I would say, give him a watch that I do not think you should waste your time in the theater, look at it, write it at home.
I think it’s a perfect rental movie, but Judi Dench has done a little better in the last 10 to 15 minutes. The story starts from this point and Sophie cooks it through the movie. It’s awesome. I’m going to give this movie a C + I did not get But I’ve found some things that you know I kinda like, and I would spice them up with just that plus. But what about you?
