The Constant Gardener
From Fernando Meirelles, the Academy Award-nominated director of City of God, comes a gripping new film that sweeps audiences along one man’s emotional and global journey to uncover the truth behind a personal loss and a worldwide conspiracy.
In a remote area of Northern Kenya, the region’s most dedicated activist, the brilliant and passionate Tessa Quayle (Rachel Weisz), has been found brutally murdered. Tessa’s travelling companion, a local doctor, appears to have fled the scene, and the evidence points to a crime of passion. Sandy Woodrow (Danny Huston), Sir Bernard Pellegrin (Bill Nighy), and the other members of the British High Commission assume that Tessa’s widower, their mild-mannered and unambitious colleague Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes), will leave the matter to their discretion, but against their advice, Justin takes matters into his own hands to find his wife’s killers and avenge her untimely death.
Two-time Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz head the cast of the romantic thriller The Constant Gardener, adapted by Jeffrey Caine from the novel of the same name by John le Carré and filmed on location in Berlin, London, and Nairobi and numerous other parts of Kenya.
