A John le Carré bestseller brought to stunning life

Anton Corbijn's sumptuously shot, impeccably structured adaptation of John le Carré's 2008 bestselling novel is a thoroughly gripping tale set in the dangerous and dingy world of a post-9/11 German intelligence unit. Tensions are high as unit head Günther Bachmann (a truly accomplished performance by the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) is drawn into a deadly web of intrigue and espionage on the streets of Hamburg. A captivating story full of twists and surprises, expertly brought to life by a thoroughly talented cast. [12A]

    The screening on June 22 is sold out. This is at Cineworld Screen 8. Any chance it could be moved next door to Screen 7, which has twice as many seats?

    With such a tight schedule, moving screenings is always difficult. We'll let you know if there are any changes. In the meantime, we released a few more tickets to the film yesterday - try again! Thanks.

    the most wanted ticket for the least interesting film of the 12 I've seen so far...
