Wonderful story by Le Carre and wonderfully acted by this newer cast, but I must say I prefer Alec Guinness, the quintessential Smiley! Gary Oldman appeared to take on two rolls, that of Smiley and then of Alec Guinness acting Smiley. I found his makeup and demeanor too contrived, but still enjoyed this effort.
