“Red Joan,” the true story of the Soviet Union’s longest-serving British spy, opens May 10 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center.

Based on the best-selling novel by Jennie Rooney, “Red Joan” stars Judi Dench as KGB operative Joan Stanley. After retiring in the suburbs, Stanley is arrested by the British Secret Service for her former work providing classified information on the atom bomb to the Soviet government.

As Stanley is interrogated, the film explores her life story, including how she quietly changed history through her decades-long role as a spy.
