Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

There is a mole in MI6. When British agent Ricki Tarr (Tom Hardy) discovers, courtesy of an affair, that there may be a Russian agent operating at a high level in MI6, it is clear that an investigation into the issue will be a delicate matter. Enter the retired spymaster George Smiley (Gary Oldman) and his associate Peter Gulliam (Benedict Cumberbatch). The pair are assigned the task of tracking down the agent, but must do so under the radar of the MI6 leadership, for the very reason that they are all under suspicion. Brilliant adaptation of John Le Carré's cold war tale, directed by Tomas Alfredson ("Let the Right One In") and co-starring Colin Firth, Toby Jones and John Hurt.
