Storyline

This film is a portrait of a writer Graham Greene. It explores how Greene's life both inspired great writing and drove him to attempt suicide. He was a British spy, a doubting Catholic, and a manic-depressive who wrote critically-acclaimed, best- selling novels, including The Quiet American, Brighton Rock, The End of the Affair and The Third Man. This documentary weaves Greene's novels and movies into the story of his life: the struggle between good and evil... love and betrayal; it reveals an extraordinary man who traveled the globe to escape the boredom of ordinary existence and became a writer addicted to danger. The film is a journey in search of Greene's most elusive character: himself. Sir Derek Jacobi narrates the film and actor Bill Nighy reads from Greene's writing. Other major participants include novelist and screenwriter Sir John Mortimer, novelist and former SIS agent John Le Carre, award-winning literary critic and novelist David Lodge, acclaimed writer Paul Theroux, ...
