Movie Rave:The Constant Gardener
There are some movies that stick with you, no matter how many years since you've seen them. I recently started hankering to re-watch one such movie. The Constant Gardener, a film starring Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz as a married couple who get caught up in a corrupt pharmaceutical company scandal in Africa, haunts you long after you watch it. Without spoiling the movie, I can tell you that Weisz character dies very early on, causing Fiennes's character Justin to manically uncover the mysterious circumstances surrounding her death. With stunning visuals and a truly horrifying and compelling story, the film feels very real, which makes the big reveal all the scarier and more potent. If you are in the mood for and engrossing, intelligent, and thought-provoking film, check out the 2005 movie.
