Fair Game Movie Poster Emerges
Nothing gets my hackles up faster, at least in the horror movie circuit, than someone saying “based on a true story”. Those five words engender my interest and my skepticism faster than just about anything. So when I saw the poster for Fair Game, I was plenty surprised.
Fair Game follows the story of Valerie Plame, the CIA agent outed back in the day by a fair number of people, none of whom received jail time or anything like that over it. Anyway, Plame worked in the CIA’s Counter-Proliferation Division, and she was leading an investigation on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Her husband was sent to Niger on a related fact-finding mission, and the facts he found weren’t good. Thus began a long and winding odyssey of betrayal and government chicanery.
Sounds like State of Play on steroids, and a great comedown for the Halloween horror season. You can catch this one in theaters November 5th.
