Tailor of Panama, The (2001) - Synopsis

Tailor of Panama, The (2001)Ruthless, seductive British spy Andy Osnard (Pierce Brosnan) may have been banished to Panama, but he's got a secret weapon - Harry Pendel (Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush), a Cockney ex-con who has reinvented himself as a popular tailor to the rich and powerful of the country. Harry is famous for his storytelling as well as his suits, but this time Harry's yarns will give Osnard his comeuppance.
Set against the controversy of the Panama Canal after its successful handover from America to Panama in late 1999, THE TAILOR OF PANAMA twists from drama to farce as Harry's stories spin out of control and inadvertently set off a chain of events that threatens Panama and everything he values in life.
