In this new adaptation of John le Carré’s bestselling novel, beautifully directed by Tomas (LET THE RIGHT ONE IN) Alfredson, George Smiley is pulled in from the cold to ferret out a Soviet mole within M16, the Brit’s secret service.
Gary Oldman (long ago the screen incarnation of Sid Vicious) plays the rather sad, unassuming spy who seems quite comfortable operating in an atmosphere of mistrust. Shot in a subdued palette that mimes le Carré’s world of muted treachery, Smiley is haunted by his decades-earlier interaction with a shadowy Russian spy master. In trying to identify the mole, he sees betrayal as “an aesthetic choice as much as a moral one.” The stellar cast includes John Hurt, Colin Firth, Toby Jones, Simon McBurney, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hardy.
