While the story was extremely interesting, the way the movie was done just did not work for me. I thought the script was very simple for one thing. The short 10-15 second scenes did not allow any depth at all. To bad Masterpiece did not get hold of this and make a 3 or 4 episode mini-series. That would have been really a good series.

Excellent movie, interesting story. Definetely recommend to view and learn the history of the remarkable female spies and the work they did along with the sacrifices.

I was very interested in the true stories of the female spies (Virginia Hall and Noor Inayat Khan) whose stories came to life in this movie. A Call to Spy did not disappoint. The courage, strength, and skill of these women is inspirational especially during the darkest days of WWII.

A very good movie, well acted, and true. Also on Netflix.

I did not connect with the characters, they did not draw me into the story. Therefore, I got bored and stopped half way through. I did look up these women online and they stories were quite interesting; their dedication to the cause phenomenal, even with little training. A truly unimaginable period of time.

Excellent movie! I highly recommend it. The story makes the viewer really care about the characters and exposes a little known aspect of England's involvement in WW 2.

It is hard to find the words to give the proper level of praise for this film. The acting is first rate. The writing is superb. The courage of the women portrayed is so remarkable. Of the many great films that I have seen, this is the only one that I will tell people that it is a MUST-SEE movie.
