Following on from the successful miniseries TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY, John Le Carré’s master spy returns in the BAFTA Award-winning Smiley’s People.
George Smiley (Oscar® winner Alec Guinness, Star Wars Episode IV) is called out of retirement when one of his contacts, a former Soviet General, is found murdered. Still working for the ‘Circus’, more commonly known as the Secret Intelligence Service, he discovers a clandestine operation run by his arch nemesis of the Russian Secret Service, Karla (Patrick Stewart, X-Men) uncovering a secret important enough to kill for.
Featuring an ensemble cast including: Bernard Hepton (Gandhi), Beryl Reid (STAR!), Alan Rickman (the Harry Potter series), Siân Phillips (I, Claudius), Michael Lonsdale (The Day of the Jackal) and Bill Patterson (The Killing Fields), Smiley’s People is a gripping tale of intrigue and espionage in the finest Le Carré tradition.
