As the US prepares for war in Iraq, CIA agent Valerie Plame (Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts) gets into political crossfire due to her husband Joe (two times Academy Award winner Sean Penn) and his public stand against the invasion.

While involved in undercover operations in the field, Plame's secret status gets leaked by the White House as deterrent and punishment. With everyone out to get her, a grueling race against time and government begins to save her exposed contacts, her family and herself.


  • Audio Commentary with Valerie Plame Wilson and Joe Wilson

This is not to be confused with the 1995 Cindy Crawford William Baldwin action stinker, as this Fair Game has brains!
Since the dispatch of Bin Laden this much overlooked movie has become even more pertinent.
In the age of WikiLeaks, the Valerie Plame affair in which the undercover CIA operative was publicly exposed after her ex-diplomat husband Joseph Wilson ticked off the Bush White house by accusing them of lying about WMDs in Iraq can almost sound quaint in hindsight.
Of course, it was anything but, Doug Liman's skilful, well constructed drama proves a timely reminder not just of one woman's ruined career, but how a petulant administration abused its elected power with sinister intent.
Director Liman claims he set out to avoid the partisan divide of American politics (Plame and Wilson are villains in neo-con land) but, being based on their tell all memoirs, it's obvious where sympathies lie.
Yet Fair Game doesn't gloss over its heroes' flaws: the work obsessed Plame (Naomi Watts) neglects her home life, while Wilson (Sean Penn) is an egotist whose bloody minded bluster lands his wife on the scrap heap.
With much of Plame's CIA activities still classified, the film has to play something of a guessing game. This has its pluses, allowing Liman to indulge in globe-hopping thrills and spin a subplot involving an Iraqi emigre plame sends on a covert mission that allows us to witness the nasty consequences of her defrocking.
The biggest minus, meanwhile, is that it's hard to know where the truth actually lies. Watts delivers a restrained performance high on quiet seething and vulnerability, while Penn does what Penn does best, swagger with all his actorly might.
Liman, for his part, follows the blockbusting of The Bourne Identity and Mr & Mrs Smith with an unexpected twist on the spy game that's a uniquely affecting human drama.
Director Liman juggles political intrigue with low-key domestic drama to polished, largely riveting effect. with the bonus of great star turns to boot. Just don't go thinking this is going to action packed and you'll enjoy every minute of this riveting and troubling spy drama.

well it's a case of another persons version of what actually happened with the WMD's. I found it lacking in action. Story line is best guess. Direction quite good but the over all production very poor. Turned it into a drama with the sound track overwhelming and drowning out the story line, made it difficult to listen to speech. To be honest, i turned it off after about 45 minutes. I struggled to get that far!!
