story.it starts off slow,giving the viewer a back story,and letting you
get to know the two main characters involved.it's a very compelling
story that once you start watching,you want to keep watching to the
end.Sean Pen and Naomi Watts portray husband and wife Joe Wilson and
Valerie Plame.for reasons i won't give away
here,Plame is outed as a CIA agent.there is much
more to the story than that,of course.Penn and Watts are excellent in
their portrayals,as are the supporting cast.Doug Liman(The Bourne
Identity)directed the film from a screenplay by Jez Butterworth &
John-Henry Butterworth based on the books "The Politics of Truth" by
Joseph Wilson and "Fair Game" by Valerie Plame Wilson.for me,Fair Game
is a 4/5
he problem was not what Joe Wilson did, but his timing and lack of consultation with his wife. From the movie, he blind sided her with the article as well. He did not have the consideration or forethought to talk to her first, instead going off half-cocked seeking some sort of revenge. They Lied! Yeah, so what. If you are going to out them, wait until things die down and spring it in October right before the election. Wilson, while being patriotic was also portrayed as self-serving his ego. Albeit, he did not think Rove would out his wife, but he should have thought that far ahead. He needed to stop and think about his actions, which didn't save anyone and along with Rove's retaliation got people killed.
In spite of Joe Wilson's fight against the WH, Valerie remained true to her CIA rules of silence. She endures threats to her family and media smears. Joe goes on TV against his wife's wishes and she leaves home to stay with her parents. The real drama of the movie is not the Wilson vs. White House, but Wilson vs. Wilson and how Valerie goes from having having no support for Joe Wilson's war (against the White House) and sleeping in separate bedrooms to becoming his ally.
The movie is excellent. Its actors simply superb.

It was OK. Had to concentrate quite a lot to establish who was 'who', but it moved along fairly well.Published on June 2 2014 by Joan Stewart
Unfortunately, this movie is in english only. That should be advertized clearly because I would not have bought it. Read morePublished on June 1 2011 by frustrated buyer
