A very riveting film with visual interest as well. Ralph Fiennes is a widower/British diplomat looking to get to the bottom of his wife's (the excellent Rachel Weisz) brutal murder, which is somehow tied to the humanitarian work she does in Africa. I found myself tensing through the last half of the movie, waiting for resolution that ultimately came, though tragically. Definitely recommend renting.
