"The Tailor of Panama"
Directed by John Boorman
John Le Carre
collaborated on the screenplay for John Boorman's adaptation of his
offbeat espionage caper. A witty, cleverly plotted film about a British
spy (Pierce Brosnan), on the outs with superiors because of his affairs
with the wives of powerful officials, and banished to Panama on a last
chance assignment. He turns to a tailor (Geoffrey Rush) with a criminal
past and political connections to be his main source. Trying to protect
himself and others, the tailor concocts a conspiracy that the corrupt spy
is more than happy to accept. With Jamie Lee Curtis and Brendan Gleeson.
