The Bourne Identity
director Doug Liman returns to his comfort zone with the political thriller Fair Game
, based on the memoir of Valerie Plame titled Fair Game: My Life As a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House
and not to be confused with the embarrassingly bad 1995 flick of the same name starring Cindy Crawford. Naomi Watts
plays Plame, a woman revealed by the White House to be a CIA agent after her husband (Sean Penn) wrote an article about how the Bush administration manipulated intelligence about weapons of mass destruction to justify the invasion of Iraq.
This fact-based biopic has righteous anger to spare, but supplements will be sparse when the movie comes home to DVD and Blu-ray on March 29—the only extra appears to be a commentary track with the real Valerie Plame Wilson and her husband, Joe Wilson.
