Part one introduces the main characters in flashback from 1970 to 1939. The main protagonist is spy, Sally Gilmartin, played by Charlotte Rampling. The beautiful, Hayley Atwell, plays Sally in her younger days,using her real name, Eva Delectorskaya. Michelle Dockery, plays Sally's daughter, Ruth Gilmartin. Ruth, a single mother, teaches while she is obtaining her PhD. Rufus Sewell is the young spy provocateur, Lucas Romer, and Michael Gambon plays him as the older man.
Sally Gilmartin lives alone in an isolated village in England. She has past retirement, her husband has died, her daughter is at Cambridge obtaining her PhD, and she is sure someone is planning to kill her. When her daughter. Ruth, and grandson come to visit, she starts to tell Ruth her story and gives her the written story of her life. Pally wants help in drawing out Lucas Romer, the only man who can save her. Via flashbacks we see Sally or Eva as she is known, as her life as a spy for England. The cloaks and daggers are out, and Eva proves to be excellent at her job. We meet her colleagues and the bigwigs in the outfit. We go with Eva on her trips and assignments. She and Lucas become lovers. When Eva us sent to Mexico on an assignment things go very wrong, and she goes undercover. The story continues, and you get to see the inner workings of the spy game. The spy game is not a game,and people are killed and maimed,but this film shows us exactly how I imagined the spy game would be played. Superb!

It has a good plot, well placed, plenty of twists and turns. It is not perfect but it is very enjoyable

The story begins in 1976 in a remote part of England when Ruth (a long red-haired hippie working on her doctorate) and her son visit her mother Sally Gilmartin. Ruth finds her mother in great fear thinking someone is in the woods behind the house trying to kill her. Sally has purchased a rifle, binoculars, and a telescope. She tells her daughter she was a Russian girl named Eva that was a spy for the British in a clandestine group that offered refuge for German informants and recruited Roosevelt's help for British causes in WW II. Sally implores Ruth to find and visit Lucas Romer, the only one she trusts in the group, to stop the present-day killers; she gives her daughter her journal of her days as a spy.
Eva's journal begins in 1939 German-occupied France when she is recruited by spymaster Lucas Romer after her brother is killed by Nazis. She is trained at a safe house in a remote part of England.Read more ›
