The lurid, scandalous events in Nairobi are based on James Fox's book concerning the British colony living in Kenya's ‘Happy Valley’ during the early days of WW2.
A millionaire past his prime, Josslyn (Charles Dance), and his young wife Diana (Greta Scacchi), arrive in Kenya circa 1940 to find that the other affluent British expatriates are living large, as the home-front gears up for war. They are busy swapping partners, doing drugs, and attending lavish parties and horse races. She begins a torrid affair with one of the bon-vivants, and her husband finds out and confronts them.
The husband and wife decide to break up peacefully, but the bon-vivant is murdered, and all the evidence points to the husband. Again, Roger Deakins (director of photography), was responsible for the visual beauty of the film. The all-star cast includes Sarah Miles, Joss Ackland, John Hurt, Trevor Howard, Geraldine Chaplin and Hugh Grant.
