Sean Penn and Naomi Watts in the Fair Game Trailer 2010-08-19 10:30:12

Movie Preview: Naomi Watts and Sean Penn in Fair Game

The trailer for Fair Game tries to lure you in with references to The Bourne Identity and a spy-thriller packaging, but let's call this movie what it is: a film based on Plamegate, a chain of events that started in 2003 and made CIA agent Valerie Plame's top-secret career public knowledge.

Naomi Watts is Plame, with Sean Penn starring as her husband, Joseph C. Wilson. When Joseph writes an op-ed piece critiquing the Bush administration, the government retaliates by blowing Plame's cover. The film looks engaging enough, but will audiences flock to see a political conspiracy film when they already know how it ends? Decide for yourself when you read more.
