Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011, Benedict Cumberbatch, Gary Oldman)



Gary Oldman stars in Tomas Alfredson’s adaptation of John Le Carré’s classic Cold War spy novel Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy about a British intelligence officer who comes out of retirement to track down a Russian operative working within MI6.

Following the capture of a British agent in Communist Hungary, veteran spy George Smiley (Oldman) is forced out of his job. However, after a field agent (Tom Hardy) raises suspicions that there’s a mole at the top of the chain of command, he is secretly called upon by the government to investigate. He enlists the help of trusted confidant Peter Guillam (Benedict Cumberbatch), and sets about trying to find out if the allegation is true – and if it is, which of his former colleagues is the defector.

The film received Oscar nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, and for Oldman as Best Actor. It also won two Bafta Awards, including Best British Film.
