Fair Game (I) (2010)

… CIA operative Valerie Plame discovers her identity is allegedly leaked by the government as payback for an op-ed article her husband wrote criticizing the Bush administration. …

Stars: Naomi Watts, Sean Penn and Sonya Davison

… Plame’s status as a CIA agent was revealed by White House officials allegedly out to discredit her husband after he wrote a 2003 New York Times op-ed piece saying that the Bush administration had manipulated intelligence about weapons of mass destruction to justify the invasion of Iraq.

This movie is based on the experiences of Valerie Plame, about whom I have blogged here. The case about the redaction of the book which became the screenplay is here. Given that trailers and posters for the movie have been appearing over the last short while, I don’t expect it to suffer the same direct-to-dvd fate as befell Nothing But the Truth, more loosely based on the experiences of Judith Miller, about whom I have blogged here.
