About the Film
Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz star in this kinetic, tense thriller based on the novel by John le Carre. The film was directed by Fernando Meirelles whose first film, City of God, was, like this film, a critical and box office success. This time out Meirelles tackles the criminal behavior of a multinational pharmaceutical company testing its products on Africans. Shot in Kenya, the film has the quality of an epic. This is Ralph Fiennes best work since The English Patient and has already created Oscar buzz.
