Dear Florence (Pugh)

2018: The Little Drummer Girl

Based on John le Carré’s best-selling literary masterpiece of the same name, The Little Drummer Girl is a passionate love story and a deeply immersive thriller. As audacious now as when the book was first published, it portrays a world in which the lines between hero and villain, and between love and hate, are dangerously in flux.

What the critics said

The screenplay’s philosophical approach, Park’s hypnotic direction and the similar magnetism of Pugh and Shannon will ultimately drive you on, propelling you deeper into The Little Drummer Girl’s beguiling world. (Farah Cheded – Film School Rejects, October 24, 2018)

Critics Consensus:
The Little Drummer Girl marches to a steady beat of assured plotting, extraordinary art direction, and a uniformly terrific cast that makes the show’s smolderingly slow burn pace bearable.
