Synopsis:

From IMDb: “In the beginning of WWII, with Britain becoming desperate, Churchill orders his new spy agency — the Special Operations Executive (SOE) — to recruit and train women as spies. Their daunting mission: conduct sabotage and build a resistance. SOE’s “spymistress,” Vera Atkins (Stana Katic), recruits two unusual candidates: Virginia Hall (Sarah Megan Thomas), an ambitious American with a wooden leg, and Noor Inayat Khan (Radhika Atpe), a Muslim pacifist. Together, these women help to undermine the Nazi regime in France, leaving an unmistakable legacy in their wake. Inspired by true stories.”

Review: An interesting backdrop with a nice selection of colors, but the edges aren’t as clean as they should be and the lighting of the faces is poorly handled.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: Spy thrillers set in and around World War II are common enough, but they have some merit left in their employment and this concept, well presented in the trailer, might be worth giving the historical subgenre a try.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
