TOP 10 FILMS of 2020: Number 9: A Call To Spy
#9 – “A Call to Spy” [REVIEW] – I love true stories from World War II so naturally I also love movies that bring those stories to life. “A Call to Spy” is a terrific example. This engrossing historical drama tells the inspirational and often harrowing story of the first women to serve as spies for Churchhill in the early days of WWII. The film is anchored by a focused script from Sarah Megan Thomas that keeps the characters front and center, by nimble direction from Lydia Dean Pilcher, and by three standout performances from Thomas, Stana Katic, and Radhika Apte. This is a smart, assured account of uncommon valor; a true story about strong women made by strong women. And it’s as timely as it is compelling.
