Red Joan (out Jun 6) is very loosely based on the true story of a young British woman who used her role as a secretary to leak valuable research information to the Soviet Union during World War II. This is largely a ho-hum drama that gets bogged down in background information and romantic subplots. The only thought-provoking layer sees the older Joan explain and justify her criminal actions to her middle aged son. Grade: C+.
