Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a Cold War espionage film based on the eponymous novel by John le Carre, who himself worked in British Intelligence services. The story follows the hunt for a Soviet mole in the top echelon of the British Secret Service.

The movie abandons all the cliches associated with spy dramas.Instead of high speed car chases and trigger-happy agents, the film focusses on a compelling story of high stakes espionage through a complex and well-structured screenplay and gritty characters.

The film won the BAFTA Awards for Outstanding British film,Best Adapted Screenplay  and Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema.Gary Oldman was nominated for Best Actor at the Academy Awards for his portrayal of Intelligence Officer George Smiley.
