Product Overview

In this seductive spy thriller based on the best-selling novel by John Le Carre, Academy Award-winner Geoffrey Rush (Shine) delivers a dazzling performance as Harry Pendel, an ex-con turned tailor to the rich and infamous, who is married to smart and sexy Louisa (Jamie Lee Curtis, True Lies). Directed by Academy Award-nominee John Boorman (Hope and Glory, Deliverance) and set in steamy Panama, where nothing is what it seems, Andy Osnard (Pierce Brosnan, The Thomas Crown Affair), a suave and ruthless British spy, entices Harry into eavesdropping on the powerful politicians he clothes. But Harry's talent for storytelling compels him to weave an elaborate tale that's not only taken as truth, but sets off a chain of events that threatens to destroy everything he treasures most in life.

Review Anyone venturing into The Tailor of Panama anticipating a James Bond movie is in for a big surprise. The expectation is not entirely out of the question. After all, putting together the name "Pierce Brosnan" with the word "spy" immediately conjures images of the suave, debonair 007 jet-setting his way across the globe. That's how closely Brosnan has become identified with the role. But his character in The Tailor of Panama, Andy Osnard, is far from a Bond clone. He is an opportunist and a user - someone without a conscience who consistently looks out only for himself, and this allows The Tailor of Panama to offer a lot more in terms of plot and character than all of Brosnan's 007 outings put together.

Review The movie is based on the John le Carre best seller, showing that when the Cold War ended, its diplomatic gamesmanship continued as farce...Many thrillers are essentially machines to inject a shock into the audience every few minutes. "The Tailor of Panama" is a real movie, rich and atmospheric, savoring its disreputable characters and their human weaknesses. And there's room for genuine emotion, too, in the way Harry Pendel desperately holds onto the respectability he has conjured out of thin air. And in the way the stubborn, heedless Mickie Abraxas says what he thinks no matter what the risk. The movie is abundant in its gifts, a pleasure for those who like a story to unfold lovingly over a full arc, instead of coming in short mindless bursts.
