Ruthless, seductive British spy Andy Osnard (Pierce Brosnan) may have been banished to Panama, but he’s got a secret weapon—Harry Pendel (Academy Award® winner Geoffrey Rush), a Cockney ex-con who has reinvented himself as a popular tailor to the rich and powerful of the country. Harry is famous for his storytelling as well as his suits, but this time Harry’s yarn will give the arrogant Osnard his comeuppance. In The Tailor of Panama, John Boorman (Academy Award® nominee for Deliverance and Hope and Glory) and John le Carré, the acknowledged master of the spy novel, team for a new breed of contemporary spy thriller based on le Carré’s hit 1996 book.
