Event Description:

The Quiet American is a 2002 film based on a novel by Graham Greene. On one level it is a love story about the triangle that develops between Thomas Fowler (Michael Caine), a British journalist in his fifties; a young American idealist, supposedly an aid worker, named Alden Pyle (Brendan Fraser); and Phuong (Do Thi Hai Yen), a Vietnamese woman. On another level it is also about the growing American involvement that led to the full-scale American war in Vietnam. Michael Caine was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor.
