Film Club: Charlize Theron • Movie: Atomic Blonde (2017)

Charlize Theron plays a spy in Atomic Blonde – and unlike 007, she does it in heels. Directed by David Leitch, who co-directed John Wick. Charlize Theron’s bad-ass with a knowing half smile and slender body in revealing evening wear is known to sashay through Berlin nightclubs. Based on the graphic novel series The Coldest City by Antony Johnston, Sam Hart and Steven Perkins, Atomic Blonde is set in 1989, during the Cold War and the last days of the Berlin Wall. Charlize puts the smackdown on some brutish East German thug.”Director, David Leitch to combine brutal, no-holds-barred action with angsty shades of vintage spy-vs-spy espionage – John Wick meets John le Carré, It’s a tricky mix that doesn’t go down easy. But Theron, in the middle of her action-hero phase and at her Mad Max: Fury Road best here, just nails it.” – Rolling Stone

Saddle in, and Press Play, while Charlize Theron carries it off with style of course, and there are loads of prurient shots of Theron, nude and bruised in a glitzy hotel room having a post-fisticuff ice bath.

It starts with Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron), an American agent working for MI6 at the end of the cold war, getting debriefed by hatchet-faced British intelligence types – weirdly like Ricki Tarr, as played by the late Hywel Bennett in the 70s TV version of Le Carré’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Covered in bruises and injuries that would have killed any other spy, Broughton coolly brings her incompetent and duplicitous bosses up to speed about her catastrophic mission: she had been sent over to Berlin to investigate the death of a fellow agent, make contact with MI6’s eccentric station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) and retrieve a Macguffin-y stolen list of agents in the field, compiled by a “turned” Stasi operative, codenamed Spyglass (Eddie Marsan). – The Guardian
