In the beginning of WWII, with Britain becoming desperate, Churchill orders his new spy agency –“SOE” – to recruit and train women as spies. Their daunting mission: conduct sabotage and build a resistance. SOE’s “Spymistress,” Vera Atkins (Stana Katic) recruits two unusual candidates: Virginia Hall (Sarah Megan Thomas), an ambitious American with a wooden leg, and Noor Inayat Khan (played by Radhika Apte), a Muslim pacifist. Together, these women help to undermine the Nazi regime in France, leaving an unmistakable legacy in their wake. Inspired by true stories.
There will also be a live Q&A with Sarah Megan Thomas on November 11, 2:00 pm PT. Sarah produced the film A Call To Spy, wrote the original screenplay and played Virginia Hall in the movie. This Q&A is included with the film registration and can be viewed anytime until November 15, 11:00 pm.
