Dangerous conspiracies. Undying love. Political manipulation. And African children. You get movies like this when Oscar's coming.

Rachel Weisz has just been nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Her performance as a radical activist won her first nomination, and her strong performance could very well win her one. Ralph Fiennes who plays her British diplomat husband has been left out of the game.

Directed by Brazilian Fernando Meirelles, those familiar with "City of God" will know what you are getting. Beautiful sceneries of Kenya rolled with a romance thriller. I must say this is an ambitious attempt and can get a little confusing at times.

It's a game of Mega Corporations (Pharmaceutical companies in this case) vs African epidemics. Although it is a purposeful piece, its political inferences will step on everybody's toes. Yes, Constant Gardener has been left out of Best Film in the Oscars.
