Since his explosive breakout in Mike Leigh's TV drama Meantime in 1984, Gary Oldman has come to be known as an “actor's actor,” an artist of extraordinary versatility who completely incarnates every role he's asked to play. Cited by the likes of Ryan Gosling, Shia La Beouf, and Alexander Skarsgård as their favorite actor, Mr. Oldman has just received his first Academy Award recognition; he is nominated as Best Actor, for his remarkable performance as tenacious George Smiley in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

Gary Oldman will appear at the Walter Reade in person for a conversation with Film Society Program Director Richard Peña, featuring clips of several of Mr. Oldman's finest performances.
