The Constant Gardener

The Constant Gardener (2005)

Based on John le Carré's best-seller, this tale of political intrigue centers on Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes), a member of the British High Commission based in Nairobi. When his wife (Rachel Weisz) is murdered, Justin refuses to leave the matter to his superiors and begins his own investigation. Not even the rumors of his wife's affairs will stop him from uncovering the truth -- a conspiracy much larger and more dangerous than he'd imagined.
My Two Cents: All propaganda aside, a well-done, well-acted story that says as much about love as it does corruption.

NetFlix Rank: Really Liked It
IMDB Rank: 8/10


Robert's Two Cents: It deserves a great deal of credit, if only for its "artistry", unique structure, and some pretty wicked cinematography.
