In the bleak days of the Cold War, es­pi­onage vet­eran Ge­orge Smi­ley (Gary Old­man) is forced from semire­tire­ment to un­cover a So­viet agent within MI6’S ech­e­lons. Also stars Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch and Toby Jones.

They say: This is a film to which close at­ten­tion must be paid, but the re­wards are con­sid­er­able.

We say: Di­rec­tor To­mas Al­fred­son ( Let The Right One In) con­tin­ues his im­pres­sive track record with this re­lent­lessly in­tel­li­gent adap­ta­tion of John le Carre’s novel. If you can find a bet­ter Bri­tish male cast in any film, ever, let us know. Run­ning time 127 min­utes. Cine­mas Aus­tralia Fair, Coolan­gatta, Har­bour Town, Pa­cific Fair, Tweed, Robina.
