A Murder of Quality

This is a 1991 movie adaptation from one of John Le Carre's few books outside his usual espionage ones.  However, the master spy Smiley is very much in this one too....this time trying to solve non-spy related murders.  The main actors are Denholm Elliott, Glenda Jackson and Christian Bale as a young student.  Le Carre was also involved in the screen play and so the movie has stayed closer to the book than most book-to-movie adaptations.  Starts off a bit slow and there's a few minutes of audio trouble with the video but it rights itself soon after that.
