From Let the Right One In director Tomas Alfredson comes this new adaptation of John Le Carré’s novel, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, starring pretty every British guy, including Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, Colin Firff, Gary Oldman (yeah, he’s British too, I had to look it up), Toby Jones, and King of All Brits, Benedict Cumberbatch. Seriously, I can’t get halfway through typing that name without offering to shoyne someone’s boots.  Set in the 70s, Oldman plays a retired intelligence agent who comes out of retirement to help catch a Soviet mole.  It looks pretty good, but I’d argue that six British dudes trying to catch an actual mole would be just as entertaining.  Especially if we greased the mole and made the Brits wear silly hats.  How come now one asks for my script notes?

Opens November 18th.
