Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (15)

2011 UK Cert 15 127 mins Director: Tomas Alfredson

Starring: Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy

Nothing can quite match Alec Guinness’s Smiley but Gary Oldman does a magnificent job as the spymaster brought out of semi-retirement to track down a moleĀ in this quietly smouldering tale of intrigue and betrayal. I had forgotten quite how much suppressed emotion seethed under the surface of this cold war tale.
