Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Directed by Tomas Alfredson
Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour) leads an extraordinary all-star cast in this masterful adaptation of John le Carré’s bestselling novel that redefined the spy thriller. At the height of the Cold War, a precarious operation goes deadly wrong, and the head of British Intelligence wonders if a double agent is leaking vital secrets. Brought out of retirement to expose the potential mole, master spy George Smiley (Oldman in an Oscar-nominated performance) is the only one who can be trusted to expose one of their own. Or can he? As the emotional and physical tolls mount on the high-ranking suspects, Smiley will be forced into the ultimate international spy game where everyone’s motives are in question. Director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In) and cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (Dunkirk) craft a visually stunning and deeply resonant tale that’s packed with powerful performances by Colin Firth (The King’s Speech), Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road), John Hurt (Alien), Toby Jones (The Mist), Mark Strong (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) and Ciarán Hinds (Munich).
