Red Joan review

Despite the compelling question it seeks to pose, Red Joan lacks the charm to draw the spectator in and have them partake in the main character's dilemma. Character drama and historical commentary that could have made the film richer than its premise ended up bogging it down in what feels like a collage of familiar, underdeveloped plots that never became more than a sum of parts.
