Gary Oldman plays the recently retired MI6 agent George Smiley as he tries to adjust to civilian life. With the re-emergence of a previously disgraced MI6 agent providing evidence of a traitor at the centre of Smiley’s old world – the Circus, he’s drawn back to his old life and past colleagues to determine who is betraying the service and country. Smiley’s investigative task is made all the more difficult as the four suspects are experts in their game, past loyalties and rivalries with his former trusted colleagues need to be questioned for Smiley to reveal who is betraying the British establishment.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy brings together some of the best current British male acting crop with Oldman skilfully supported by Colin Firth and Benedict Cumberbatch to name a few in this tense spy thriller which will keep you guessing till the end. A masterpiece of Le Carre storytelling ably depicted on screen by director Tomas Alfredson.

MOVIEMAIL

A brilliant new adaptation of John le Carré's cold war novel, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In). Featuring a top-notch cast - Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hardy, John Hurt & especiallly Gary Oldman, who does the almost unthinkable by creating an interpretation of George Smiley to stand alongside Alec Guinness's, the 1970s period design & the ingenious way the expansive story is condensed into 2 hours, make this one of the best British films of the year. There is a mole in MI6. When British agent Ricki Tarr discovers, courtesy of an affair, that there may be a Russian agent operating at a high level in MI6, it is clear that an investigation into the issue will be a delicate matter. Enter the retired spymaster George Smiley & his associate Peter Gulliam (Benedict Cumberbatch). The pair are assigned the task of tracking down the agent, but must do so under the radar of the MI6 leadership, for the very reason that they are alll under suspicion. For those who don't know the story already, this is a fine introduction. If you are familiar with the 1979 BBC mini-series however, the pleasure is doubled, as comparison with the earlier version's characterisations gives an added layer of pleasure.
