In the 1970's, former spy George Smiley (who is in forced retirement), is called in to investigate the news that there is a Soviet mole of high-ranking within 'the Circus' - the in-house name for MI6 - who has been there for years making him one of George's former colleagues. George manages to narrow his search down to four men, all colleagues of his. His rivalries and friendships with each of the suspects will make it difficult for George to locate the mole who is eroding at the centre of the British government.
The film - shot on location in London, Istanbul and Budapest - was directed by Tomas Alfredson, who has previously directed Swedish horror film 'Let the Right One In' in 2008. The film is based on the novel of the same name, written by British writer John Le CarrÃ©, who is also one of the executive producers on the film. It is a remake of the original film from 1979.
