Speaking about the film in a 2011 statement JOHN LE CARRÉ commented “The film, through my very personal prism, is a triumph.  And if people write to me and say, ‘How could you let this happen to poor Alec Guinness,’ I shall reply that, if ‘poor Alec’ had witnessed Oldman’s performance, he would have been the first to give it a standing ovation. It’s not the film of the book.  It’s the film of the film, and to my eye a work of art in its own right.  I’m very proud to have provided Alfredson with the material, but what he made of it is wonderfully his own.” 

The spy thriller features an incredible cast with Gary Oldman in the iconic role of George Smiley. TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY also stars Kathy Burke, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Ciarán Hinds, John Hurt, Toby Jones, Konstantin Khabensky, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Roger Lloyd Pack, and Mark Strong. Directed by Tomas Alfredson, TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY is a Working Title production for STUDIOCANAL.  

Set in the 1970s, TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY finds George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a recently retired MI6 agent, doing his best to adjust to a life outside the secret service. However, when a disgraced agent reappears with information concerning a mole at the heart of the Circus, Smiley is drawn back into the murky field of espionage. 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, urbane, 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.
