šššš ATOMIC BLONDE. Di­rected by: David Leitch. Starring: Char­l­ize Theron, James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella, John Good­man. Show­ing at: Hem­ing­ways, Bay­west. BASED on Sam Hart’s novel The Cold­est City, Atomic Blonde fol­lows a top spy on a mis­sion to re­cover an im­por­tant list of names. On the eve of the col­lapse of the Ber­lin Wall in 1989, elite spy Lor­raine Broughton (Char­l­ize Theron) is tasked with the re­spon­si­bil­ity to re­cover the list, a mi­cro­film with names of all ac­tive agents in the Soviet Union.

The list must be re­cov­ered from a KGB agent who stole it from MI6 agent James Gas­ciogne, who was shot and killed.

Broughton is am­bushed by KGB agents on ar­rival, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to ac­com­plish her mis­sion.
