When Nairobi-based diplomat Justin Quayle's (Fiennes) outspoken activist wife Tess (Weisz) is found murdered in a remote region of Northern Kenya, he begins to uncover a whole load of dirty secrets. Beautifully structured and shot, Mereilles' film succeeds as both a polemical thriller and a retrospective love story, with Fiennes outstanding in the role of a man gradually opening up to the depth of his feelings for his wife only after her death.
