Master of espionage John le Carré’s captivating storytelling has seen many adaptations in the writer’s long career, from The Constant Gardner and The Spy Who Came in from the Cold to Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. The most recent televised adaptation was 2016’s The Night Manager, a smash-hit miniseries starring Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston, airing on both BBC One in the U.K. and on AMC. In its footsteps comes The Little Drummer Girl, the latest le Carré story to come to the small (or streaming) screen, hitting AMC on November 19.
The Little Drummer Girl, a “gripping” spy thriller, has already earned quite the buzz for both its captivating performances and stylish filmmaking. The story follows fiery actress and left-wing idealist Charmian “Charlie” Ross as she is entangled into a complex game of espionage and takes on the role of a double agent. Set in the late 1970s, with vibrant costumes and lavish filming locations across Europe, from London and Prague to Greece, The Little Drummer Girl marks the television debut of acclaimed Korean director Chan-wook (Oldboy, The Handmaiden, Stoker).
This pulsating, globetrotting thriller stars Florence Pugh (Lady Macbeth) as Charlie, the struggling young actress who turns out to be a natural at inventing false identities. As the mysterious Gadi Becker, whose holiday fling with Charlie lures her into the world of espionage, is Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies, True Blood). Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water, Boardwalk Empire) stars as Israeli spymaster Martin Kurtz.
