I recommend this gentle film with Judi Dench playing an elderly woman who had been involved with espionage in her youth.

It is very good and anybody claiming on another thread that Judi Dench is an overrated actress who only ever plays herself should watch it.

I saw it when it was on at the cinema, and really enjoyed it, so would also recommend.

I think Judi Dench is brilliant as you forget who you are watching, and see only the character she is playing. With some other actors, you see the actor ‘in character’ and are always reminded of the actor rather than the character, if you see what I mean.

We really enjoyed it and are watching " Behind Her Eyes " now .

Interesting you think it’s a gentle film - I haven’t seen it, but the book was quite suspenseful!
