Frightening, heartbreaking and exquisitely calibrated, THE CONSTANT GARDENER is a profoundly moving story of a man ennobled by his wife’s tragic murder, and a magnificent exploration of the dark side of unbridled capitalism.
le Carré’s record-breaking 500,000 copy international bestseller now comes to the big screen. Directed by critically acclaimed Fernando Meirelles (CITY OF GOD), with an all-star cast featuring Ralph Fiennes, Rachel Weisz, Pete Postlethwaite and Bill Nighy, and shot on location in Berlin, Kenya and the UK, THE CONSTANT GARDENER will be the film tie-in of the year.
” ‘A powerful, moving novel… essential reading’ – Chris Woodhead, Sunday Telegraph. ‘Richly detailed, full of righteous fire… It is certainly one of John le Carre’s best books’ – Sean O’Brien, The Times Literary Supplement. ‘Le Carre poses deep spiritual questions about the damage ‘the human race’ has done, and continues to do, both to the planet and to itself. He does so in a page-tumer which reminds us that the master storyteller of the Smiley books has lost none of his cunning’ – A.N. Wilson, Daily Mail”
John le Carré’s international bestseller – now a major film from the director of CITY OF GOD, starring Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz
