Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

There is so much to be excited about for “Tinker Tailor Solider Spy” that it’s hard to list everything. For starters, the cast is amazing: Gary Oldman (in the role that will most likely finally win him an Oscar), Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, Toby Jones and John Hurt. Aside from a group of some of the most talented actors working today, the film is also the first English-language project from “Let The Right One In” director Tomas Alfredson. It’s also a highly stylized espionage thriller set during the Cold War and dealing with a possible mole in MI-6. If the trailers are any indication, “Tinker Tailor” will be one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year.
