Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris star in this gripping adaptation of John le Carré's best-selling thriller about an ordinary English couple who find themselves caught up in international intrigue. While on vacation in Marrakech, an ordinary English couple befriend a flamboyant and charismatic Russian who, unbeknownst to them, is a kingpin money launderer for the Russian mafia. When he asks for their help to deliver classified information to the British Secret Services, they get caught in a dangerous world of international espionage and dirty politics.

"Watching a John le Carré story unfold on screen is like slipping into the standard-issue overcoat of an elegant, mildly depressive spymaster: The collar is popped (to ward off fog and espionage), the pockets are full (of secrets!), and it comes, of course, in only one shade (morally ambiguous gray)."
"The performances are lovely and director Susanna White manages to wring maximum tension from the cat-and-mouse game. Fans of spy novelist John le Carré may take umbrage with the reworked ending, but the film is nonetheless a riveting and accomplished work."
