Oscar-winning documentary maker Errol Morris pulls back the curtain on the life and career of former British spy David Cornwell—better known as John le Carré, author of the popular spy novel “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold," and many others. Set against the turbulent backdrop of the Cold War leading into present day, the film spans six decades as le Carré delivers his final and most candid interview, punctuated with rare archival footage and dramatized vignettes. A deeply human and engaging exploration of le Carré's extraordinary journey and the paper-thin membrane between fact and fiction.
