We pull back the curtain on the storied life and career of former British spy David Cornwell, better known as John le Carré. Set against the turbulent backdrop of the Cold War, leading up to present day, his novels (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Constant Gardener amongst many others) reinvented the spy novel. In his final and most candid interview with multi-award winning documentarian Errol Morris (The Thin Blue Line, Tabloid, The Fog of War) we plunge deep into the author’s extraordinary journey and the paper-thin membrane between fact and fiction.
“I was enthralled by every minute of it.”
-Kyle Smith, The Wall Street Journal
“Much richer than a mere biographical documentary, fascinating even to those who haven’t read Cornwall’s work.”
- Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
