Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Director Tomas Alfredson’s film Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy takes audiences into the heart of Cold War intrigue and hypocrisy that dominated Britain’s intelligence world in the 1970s.  Based on the novel by John le Carre, actor Gary Oldman plays MI6 officer George Smiley as he struggles to identify the enemy in the murky landscape of double crossings. Oldman has played many, many roles in his career - among them Lee Harvey Oswald, Pontius Pilate, Beethoven and The Devil - but Oldman tells Bob that George Smiley is right at the top of his list of favorite characters to spend time with and become.
