Joan Stanley (Judi Dench) is a widow living out a quiet retirement in a pictureseque village in England when, shockingly, the British Secret Service places her under arrest. The charge is providing classified scientific information- as the interrogation gets underway, Joan relives the dramatic events that shaped her life and her beliefs. Joan has been hiding an incredible past; she is one of the most influential spies in living history....Cambridge University in the 1930s, and the young Joan (Sophie Cookson), a demure physics student, falls intensely in love with a seductively attractive Russian saboteur, Leo (Tom Hughes).Through him, she begins to see that the world is on a knife-edge and perhaps must be saved from itself in the race to military supremacy. Joan successfully transferred nuclear bomb secrets to the Soviet Union (Russia), which enabled them to keep up with the west in the development of atomic weapons,and remained undetected as a spy for over half a century.'Red Joan' is the taut and emotional discovery of one woman's sacrifice in the face of incredible circumstances.

We look forward to seeing you at the Nayland Community Cinema, no need to book just come along.

Cinema entry will be £5 but with every fifth attendance free (with a loyalty card available at the cinema) this equates to only £4 a film.

As we are now coming up to a year since the Nayland Cinema was relaunched I am proposing to ask Lorraine to include a questionnaire in the next edition of the Community Times. I would be grateful if you could spare the time to complete this questionnaire and return to the Post Office in the box provided. This will enable us to consider your preferences to ensure that the cinema continues to thrive. Many thanks.
