Based on the classic John le Carré novel, this international thriller is set at the height of the Cold War. Disgraced British spy George Smiley (Gary Oldman) is rehired in secret by his government – which fears that MI6 has been compromised by a double agent working for the Soviets.
★★★★★ “More gripping and involving than any crash-bang action picture. What a treat this film is, and what an unexpected thrill.” GUARDIAN
★★★★★ “Completely absorbing and a more than worthy companion piece to the 1979 BBC serialisation.” TELEGRAPH
★★★★ “This spy story is all about the journey – the process – and the byways of the route, not the grand finale. This film’s superb cast, script and direction threaten to make that journey equally as thrilling as Le Carré’s book.” TIME OUT
