Red Joan is a 2018 British spy drama film, directed by Trevor Nunn, based on a novel of the same name written by Jennie Rooney, which was itself inspired by the life of Melita Norwood (1912-2005), who successfully passed classified information about the British Atomic program to the Russians in the 1940s & 50s. This was only discovered in 1992 by which time the Ministry of Defence declined to prosecute the then 80 year old .

The film stars Stephen Campbell Moore, Sophie Cookson, Tom Hughes, Ben Miles, Nina Sosanya, Tereza Srbova and Judi Dench.

“I was fighting for the living, I loved my country!”

In the year 2000, in a picturesque village in England, Joan Stanley (Judi Dench), lives in contented retirement. Then suddenly her tranquil existence is shattered as she’s shockingly arrested by MI5, Britain’s CIA equivalent. She is defended by her lawyer son Nick (Ben Miles), who is furious: “How could you do this?” he insists, while reluctantly taking on her case. Joan confesses after her arrest that she was always a good British citizen though she handed nuclear secrets to Stalin. How so? Disgusted that the U.S. dropped bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, she believed that the best way to avoid future nuclear holocausts is to make sure that the two super powers would live together in relative peace. And they would live together in relative peace knowing that it would be self-destructive to drop atomic weapons on each other.

Joan had been hiding an incredible past: she was one of the most influential spies in living history. The young Joan (Sophie Cookson), a demure physics student, falls intensely in love with a seductively attractive Russian saboteur, Leo Galich (Tom Hughes), a communist activist who in a rousing speech notes that as a Jew, he made the mistake of leaving the Soviet Union and going to Germany. Aware of Hitler’s atrocities, he is orating full speed in favor of the Russians. Through him, she begins to see that the world is on a knife-edge and perhaps must be saved from itself in the race to military supremacy. Post-war and now working at a top secret nuclear research facility, Joan is confronted with the impossible: Would you betray your country and your loved ones, if it meant saving them? What price would you pay for peace?

Book Club is a 2018 American romantic comedy film directed by Bill Holderman, in his directorial debut, and written by Holderman and Erin Simms. It stars Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen.  

The story centers on four women, lifelong friends, who have attended a monthly book club 30 years, bonding over the suggested literature.  Diane (Diane Keaton) is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage, and her daughters would like her to move closer to them in Arizona as they perceive her to be in danger because she’s living alone. Vivian (Jane Fonda) owns and builds hotels, enjoys her independence and wants no strings attached. Sharon (Candice Bergen) is a federal judge who’s been single since she divorced her son’s father over 15 years ago. Carol (Mary Steenburgen) is married to Bruce but after 35 years they have recently lacked intimacy.
One day they read the provocative bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey and are turned on by the content. Viewing it as a wakeup call, they decide to expand their lives and chase pleasures that have eluded them. With newfound confidence, they each begin to come alive as exciting romances are ignited and old flames are rekindled….

Vivian: I would like to introduce you to Christian Grey. It was a bestseller made into a movie.
Sharon: We are not reading this.
Vivian: It’s my month! When it’s your month, you can choose whatever boring, depressing book you want.
Sharon: I’m not sure this qualifies as a book.
Vivian: Well, fifty million people can’t be wrong.
Sharon: To… To even be holding this book is embarrassing.
Vivian: Who’s judging you, your cat?
Carol: I do like the idea of a romance.
Sharon: We are too old!
Carol: But it says right here “for mature audiences.”
Diane: Yeah, that certainly sounds like us.
Sharon: We started this book club to stimulate our minds.
Vivian: Well, from what I hear, this book is quite stimulating.
Diane: Oh, God.
Vivian: So, come on! Let’s toast to our new book.
Carol: All right.
Vivian: Oh, good. Drink up. Hoist that glass. Happy reading, ladies!

Workshop: Business Etiquette

Wall Street English organizza per mercoledì 13 marzo un workshop dedicato alle competenze di Business Etiquette, espressione con cui si intende l’insieme di regole di comportamento grazie alle quali è possibile trasmettere un’immagine positiva di sé in qualsiasi occasione lavorativa, al di là delle competenze puramente tecniche, ormai non più sufficienti per essere veramente competitivi nei mercati internazionali.

L’incontro, in lingua inglese, sarà un’occasione per aziende, dipendenti e professionisti di comprendere le culture, le abitudini e le regole da rispettare quando ci si relaziona con i Paesi esteri in un contesto multinazionale. Stabilire una relazione tra la cultura ed il contesto di appartenenza dei partecipanti alla comunicazione e alla negoziazione interculturale, permette di  evitare, per quanto possibile, preconcetti, conflitti e distanze culturali.

La partecipazione è gratuita, ma è richiesta l’iscrizione da effettuare via e-mail all’indirizzo wsi@wsi.it .  Per informazioni: 0432-481464.

FILM IN LINGUA ORIGINALE

Il prossimo film in lingua originale è The Mule, in programma al Cinema Centrale lunedì 11 febbraio ore 18.50 e martedì 12 ore 21.20

************

The Mule is a 2018 American crime drama film produced and directed by Clint Eastwood, who also plays the lead role as Earl Stone, based on Leo Sharp, a 90-year-old war veteran who worked as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel.  The screenplay, by Nick Schenk, is based on The New York Times article “The Sinaloa Cartel’s 90-Year-Old Drug Mule” by Sam Dolnick, which recounts the true story of Leo Sharp.

Earl Stone (Clint Eastwood) is an elderly horticulturist and Korean War veteran who is broke, alone, facing financial ruin. Long estranged from his ex-wife (Dianne Weist) and the daughter (Alison Eastwood) he ignored during his marriage, Earl’s only family connection left is his granddaughter (Taissa Farmiga), who is about to get married. Desperate for money, he becomes a “mule” transporting cocaine through Illinois for the Sinaloa Cartel, a Mexican drug cartel. Facing little suspicion due to his age, race, spotless criminal history and strict adherence to driving laws, Earl is soon trusted with huge amounts of drugs and paid equally large amounts of cash. With the money he obtains from drug-running, he pays for renovations of the local VFW *Post and his granddaughter’s wedding and education. He becomes friendly with the cartel members, who call him Tata (“grandfather”). Meanwhile,  Drug Enforcement Administration agent Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper) and his task force are narrowing in on the cartel’s deliveries to Chicago….

Even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it’s uncertain if he’ll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel’s enforcers, catch up to him:

Earl Stone: Family is the most important thing. Don’t do what I did. I put work in front of family. I thought it was more important to be somebody out there than the failure I was in my own home.

Earl Stone: I was a terrible father, a terrible husband. I blew my chance. I didn’t deserve forgiveness. This is the last one. So help me God, this is the last one. For what it’s worth, I’m sorry for everything.
