The Constant Gardener is a 2005 drama film directed by Fernando Meirelles. The screenplay by Jeffrey Caine is based on the John le Carré novel of the same name. It tells the story of Justin Quayle, a man who seeks to find the motivating forces behind his wife's murder. As the mystery surrounding his wife's death unfolds, the quiet and self-effacing Quayle is radicalised in his determination to get to the bottom of his wife's murder.

 

He is soon running up against a drug corporation exercising its power to both ignore the easily treated diseases of the third world and use Africa's "disposable" population for unofficial research and development. Pete Postlethwaite is Lorbeer, a weather-beaten drug company man who works in the field – at what, it is dangerous to say.

 

The film stars Ralph Fiennes, Rachel Weisz, Hubert Koundé, Danny Huston, and Bill Nighy. It was filmed on location in Loiyangalani and the slums of Kibera, a section of Nairobi, Kenya. The situation affected the cast and crew to the extent that they set up the Constant Gardener Trust in order to provide basic education for these villages.
