Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Directed by Tomas Alfredson

Veteran agent George Smiley is asked to return from retirement to investigate the possibility of there being a Soviet mole within ‘the circus’, the highest echelon of the British secret service. As he digs deeper into the morass of lies and deception, Smiley realises that corruption has channelled its way to the very heart of the establishment.

Expect plenty of subterfuge and double-dealing as Gary Oldman, in his first leading role for over 15 years, takes on the overcoat and spectacles of John le Carré’s legendary and much-loved character Smiley, in Let the Right One In director Tomas Alfredson’s new take on this classic espionage cold war thriller.
