The Constant Gardener

Ralph Fiennes is a British diplomat to Kenya in The Constant Gardener. His “bleeding heart” wife is killed under suspicious circumstances. He begins investigating the pharmaceutical company she was looking into and finds himself in danger. At the beginning of the film, I was disappointed to find Fiennes playing yet another quiet, submissive character… with an annoying wife. He develops well through the film though (and you’ll grow to love her after she’s dead). The film looks great and is directed by Fernando Meirelles, the man responsible for the amazing City of God. It might have been a little long, but it is a good story. I definitely recommend this film.
