First Glance: “A Call to Spy”


The upcoming movie “A Call to Spy” looks to be a fascinating historical drama from a uniquely female perspective. It’s directed by Lydia Dean Pilcher with Sarah Megan Thomas writing, producing, and starring. This World War II espionage thriller dropped its first trailer over the weekend and it appears to have a powerful and timely story to tell.

Early into the war a desperate Winston Churchill organized a new task force to recruit and train women as spies for a fledgling resistance. The film follows a group of recruits, each with their own unique strengths, as they prepare and carry out missions against Nazi occupiers. It also stars Stana Katic and Radhika Apte. The period design looks sharp and the story looks to have some real meat on its bones.

“A Call to Spy” opens October 2nd in select theaters and On Demand. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
