Features the films THE CONSTANT GARDENER and OUT OF AFRICA. Justin Quayle is a low-level British diplomat who has always gone about his work very quietly, not causing any problems.

In OUT OF AFRICA, Karen Blixen-Flecke is a modern woman, caught in the shortcomings of a practical marriage. Finch Hatton is a gallant British hunter, lonely, but unable to commit. As they two meet and begin a torrid affair, they set out on an epic adventure in the badlands of Africa.

[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Constant Gardener [/COLOR](Dir. Fernando Meirelles, 2005): In a remote area of Northern Kenya, activist Tessa Quayle (Rachel Weisz) is found brutally murdered. Tessa's companion, a doctor, appears to have fled the scene, and the evidence points to a crime of passion. Members of the British High Commission in Nairobi assume that Tessa's widower, their mild-mannered and unambitious colleague Justin Quayle (Ralph Fiennes), will leave the matter to them. They could not be more wrong....

Haunted by remorse and jarred by rumors of his late wife's infidelities, Quayle surprises everyone by embarking on a personal odyssey that will take him across three continents. Using his privileged access to diplomatic secrets, he will risk his own life, stopping at nothing to uncover and expose the truth; a conspiracy more far-reaching and deadly than Quayle could ever have imagined.

Based on the novel by John Le Carre, The Constant Gardener was nominated for 3 Oscars and Rachel Weisz duly collected statuette hers for a superb supporting turn as Tessa Quayle.

[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Out of Africa [/COLOR](Dir. Sydney Pollack, 1985): Sydney Pollack directs this sweeping romantic drama based on the memoirs of Danish writer, Isak Dinesen.

Meryl Streep stars as Karen Blixen, the restless wife of European aristocrat and plantation owner Baron Bror Blixen (Brandauer). When Bror departs to hunt big game and chase women, the running of their East African coffee plantation falls to Karen. She throws herself into this task with the same determination and spirit she brings to her passionate but sporadic affair with free-spirited British hunter Denys Finch Hatton (Robert Redford). While enduring her husband's infidelities and the eventual destruction of their beloved land, she entertains Denys and befriends the workers. Hatton shares Karen's profound love for the African landscape but is unwilling to sacrifice his independence for their relationship...
