Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris star in this film adapted from the acclaimed novel by John le Carré. While on holiday in Marrakech, Perry (McGregor) and Gail (Harris) befriend a flamboyant and charismatic Russian, Dima (Stellan Skarsgard) who unbeknownst to them is a kingpin money launderer for the Russian mafia. When Dima asks for help to deliver classified information to the British Secret Services, Perry and Gail get caught up in a world of international espionage and dangerous politics. The couple is propelled on a perilous journey through Paris and Bern, a safe house in the French Alps, to the murky corners of the City of London and an alliance with the British Government via a ruthless and determined MI6 agent (Damian Lewis). This taut thriller twists and turns its way around the world with dramatic consequences.
