The Constant Gardener

Is anyone else really looking forward to this film?

Fantastic cast and I've only heard good things... plus, it sounds like a really interesting plot


Very cool movie website as well: http://www.theconstantgardener.com/

Seriously, I think the heavens have aligned for the production of this movie!

I'm already planning to go see it on Wednesday night

Yes it looks very good

I love Ralph Fiennes, and Rachel Weisz is one of the most beautiful women ever

So it's out tomorrow?

This is a great movie!

I went to a late show last night... I was riveted. This is a great story, incredible script, and Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz are just so wonderful in their roles.

Not to mention the absolutely beautiful cinematography... Africa and the extremely relevant theme.

I would definitely recommend this film

I thought it was good, especially the points it made about pharma companies and Africa. This quote I remember..I probably don't have it right word for word (when they were talking about the TB drug trials)

"there are no murders in Africa, only regrettable deaths"

The cinematography is beautiful

sorry to say but I don't think it will do well at the box office, some people don't seem to have the patience for/interest in a movie like that. I went to a late afternoon matinee yesterday and at least four people walked out early on. I guess they didn't realize what kind of movie it is

It's based on a book by John Le Carre

I agree, unfortunately. It's not a "summer blockbuster" or anything like that... I think most people will find it too heavy

I just picked this up from the bookstore yesterday... can't wait to read it. When movies based on books have intrigued me, I generally want to read the book to find out more about the characters I liked so much
