Radhika Apte’s ‘A Call To Spy’ Trailer Looks Promising And Intriguing
Directed by Lydia Dean Pilcher and starring Sarah Megan Thomas, Stana Katic, and Radhika Apte in the lead roles, A Call to Spy is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The movie opens in theatres and VOD on October 2.
According to IFC Films’ YouTube channel, the movie is about the time when Winston Churchill’s Special Operations Executive (SOE) began to enlist women as spies during World War II.
“Their daunting mission: conduct sabotage and build a resistance. Spymistress Vera Atkins, later the inspiration for Ian Fleming’s Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond franchise, was the chief recruiter for this secret army. Atkins selected two unusual candidates: Virginia Hall, an American journalist from Baltimore hampered by a wooden leg, and Noor Inayat Khan, a wireless officer of Indian descent and an avowed pacifist. Together, they worked to undermine the Nazi regime in France. The courage, sacrifices, and grit of these three women helped quell the Nazi occupation – and ultimately turned the tide of the war,” says the official synopsis on the page.
