“Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy”

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is based on the 1974 novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by John le Carré.

The film stars Gary Oldman as George Smiley, and co-stars Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, Toby Jones, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch and Ciarán Hinds.

Smiley, a retired British spy, is rehired in secret by his government - which fears that the British Secret Intelligence Service has been compromised by a double agent working for the Soviets.

Tasked with investigating which of his trusted former colleagues has chosen to betray him and their country, Smiley narrows his search to four suspects - all experienced, skilled and successful agents - but past histories, rivalries and friendships make it far from easy to pinpoint the man who is eating away at the heart of the British establishment.

You will need to follow the plot very closely.
