Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

15th Feb 2012 - 7:30pm

Studio Theatre

Short Cuts Cinema screens Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Tomas Alfredson, 2011) on Wednesday 15th February (new date) at 7.30pm in the Studio Theatre.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is based on the John le Carre’s Cold War spy novel. Set in the 1970s, George Smiley (Gary Oldman, The Dark Knight), a recently retired MI6 agent, is 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.
