Oscar® winner John Gielgud*, Derek Jacobi, Richard Attenborough and Nicol Williamson star in this intriguing take of spies and counterspies, based on Graham Greene's brilliant novel. When a leak in the British Secret Service is discovered in Russia, two agents become the target of the government's investigation: Arthur Davis (Jacobi), a high-living bachelor whose attempts at a secret rendezvous with a woman arouse the suspicions of his superiors; and Maurice Castle (Williamson), who eight years earlier had defied his government by falling in love with an African woman (supermodel Iman) and helping her escape to England to become his wife. Ironically, one of the men is selling secrets to the Communists, and in the course of the investigation, the suspected double agent is eliminated by the government. But did they kill the wrong man? Directed by Otto Preminger (Advise and Consent) and written by Tom Stoppard (Empire of the Sun), The Human Factor contains multi-layered plot twists that will keep you in suspense until the climactic finale! *1981: Best Supporting Actor – Arthur.
