Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is the long-awaited feature film version of John le Carré's classic bestselling thriller. The time is 1973. The Cold War of the mid-20th century continues to threaten international relations. Britain's Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), code-named the Circus, is striving to keep pace with other countries' espionage efforts and to keep the U.K. secure. The head of the Circus, known as Control (John Hurt), personally sends dedicated operative Jim Prideaux (Mark Strong) into Hungary. But Jim's mission goes bloodily awry, and Control is forced out of the Circus—as is his top lieutenant, George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a career spy with razor-sharp senses. Estranged from his absent wife, Smiley is soon called in to see Undersecretary Oliver Lacon (Simon McBurney), who tells him that he is to be rehired in secret. There is a gnawing fear that the Circus has long been compromised by a double agent working for the Soviets, jeopardizing England. Supported by younger agent Peter Guillam (Benedict Cumberbatch), Smiley pores over Circus activities past and present, trying to find the mole. Also starring Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Toby Jones, Kathy Burke and Ciarán Hinds. Directed by Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In).
