The Constant Gardener (2005)
A conservative British diplomat (Ralph Fiennes) plunges into the riddles of a dark Third World conspiracy after his activist wife (Best Supporting Actress Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz) is murdered--apparently by forces trying to protect pharmaceutical companies testing experimental drugs on the poverty-stricken African populace.
