A Good Man in Africa - 1994 - Colin Friels, Joanne Whalley-Kilmer, Sean Connery, Louis Gossett Jr., John Lithgow, Diana Rigg $25.99US

"'A Good Man' has so many good things! It's one of the most perfectly cast roles Connery has ever had" - Los Angeles Times

Academy Award winner Sean Connery heads an all-star cast in this wickedly funny comedy about sex, power and colliding cultures from the director of 'Driving Miss Daisy'.

Politics are already strained between English imperialists and the West African government of Kinjanja when womanising British diplomat Morgan Leafy (Colin Friels) is caught in bed with Celia (Joanne Walley-Kilmer), wife of corrupt Kinjanjan presidential candidate Sam Adekunle (Louis Gossett Jr.) As punishment, Leafy is forced into bribing an official who has voted down a project that stands to make Adekunle very rich. Leafy thinks he's gotten off easy...until he learns the lone holdout is none other than Kinjanja's own brick wall of integrity, Dr. Alex Murray (Connery). Meanwhile, Leafy must also contend with his absurdly stuffy boss Fanshawe (John Lithgow), Fanshave's lusty wife (Diana Rigg) and their luscious, too friendly daughter!

Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as "a grand party with wonderful guests!", this wildly witty satire is your invitaion to "incorruptible" entertainment.
