Pierce Brosnan plays a suave spy named… Osnard, Andy Osnard. Banished to Panama, Osnard stays in the game via a well connected clothier (”Quills”’ Geoffrey Rush) who may have more than just lint up his sleeve. Director John Boorman (”Deliverance”) reportedly reshot the ending after test audiences objected — a change that may well infuriate fans of John le CarrĂ©’s darkly comic 1996 best seller.
