Film adaptation of the 1974 novel of the same name follows an espionage expert as he must uncover a Soviet mole inside of MI6.

George Smiley, an espionage specialist and protege of the then-director of British intelligence agency MI6, is forced into retirement in 1973 following a bungled operation in Hungary that blossoms into a full-blown international incident. Later on, however, Smiley is called back into service for his most challenging endeavor to date: Uncovering a possible Soviet agent operating inside MI6 who could compromise the integrity of his former employer if he is not identified and subsequently dealt with. Nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Score.
