Product Overview

Gary Oldman leads a stunning all-star cast in this masterful adaptation of John le Carré’s bestselling novel that redefined the spy thriller. At the height of the Cold War, a precarious operation goes deadly wrong, and the head of British Intelligence wonders if a double agent is leaking vital secrets. Brought out of retirement to expose the potential mole, master spy George Smiley (Oldman) is the only one who can be trusted to expose one of their own. Or can he? As the emotional and physical tolls mount on the high-ranking suspects, Smiley will be forced into the ultimate international spy game where everyone’s motives are in question. Filled with stunning performances by Academy Award® winner Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, Toby Jones, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch and Ciarán Hinds, it’s the powerful and deeply resonant spy tale that Ebert Presents at the Movies hails as “hands down the best new thriller this year.”

Editors Note
Note An ex-British agent (Gary Oldman) is brought out of retirement to rout out a MI6 double agent in this adaptation of John Le Carre's novel. Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, and Ciaran Hinds round out the starring cast, with Tomas Alfredson helming a script by Bridget O'Connor and Peter Straughan. In 1979, the BBC aired a highly-acclaimed mini-series adapatation starring Alec Guiness in a rare small-screen appearance.
Hollywood Reporter "Huge on period atmosphere....Visually absorbing..." 09/05/2011
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "Alfredson's direction is as hypnotic as silent snowfall. As in his tender horror, LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, slow and steady wins the race..." 10/01/2011
Sight and Sound "[With] a crack cast, tight scripting and Alfredson's direction, bringing to it something of the cool control and refusal to sensationalize that made his breakthrough movie LET THE RIGHT ONE IN so exceptional." 10/01/2011
Uncut 4 stars out of 5 -- "Alfredson gradually, imperceptibly ratchets up the tnesion....It always comes back -- brilliantly -- to Oldman's Smiley..." 10/05/2011
Box Office 4 stars out of 5 -- "It's a Cold War-era tale, one that plays out in moral shades of gray, where the broad and brilliant cast engage each other with a series of smiling lies....TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY is the intellectual action flick of your dreams." 12/01/2011
Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY looks, sounds and feels exactly right. Alfredson's film is faithful to the tone set by the novel." 12/14/2011
Los Angeles Times "[D]eliciously, thrillingly, brilliantly complex....This is a film to which very close attention must be paid, but the rewards of doing so are considerable." 12/09/2011
USA Today "Director Tomas Alfredson impeccably captures the Cold War era....The film employs a largely British cast that is perhaps the most impressive ensemble of any movie this year." 12/09/2011
New York Times "[A] pleasurably sly and involving puzzler -- a mystery about mysteries within mysteries." 12/08/2011
Movieline "The picture is so meticulously constructed -- like an elaborate mechanical watchwork -- that details can slip past you if you?re not paying careful attention....[The film] challenges audiences to believe in craftsmanship again." 12/08/2011
Entertainment Weekly "At times it's enthrallingly clever and subtle....A movie of deceptions within deceptions and clues that glide by in a murmured flash." -- Grade: B 12/09/2011
Washington Post 3 stars out of 4 -- "It's a 1970s story told in 1970s style, an unrepentant un-reboot so old school that it feels subversively new." 12/16/2011
