The shocking truth about Doug Liman’s “Fair Game”? As glamorous and attractive as Naomi Watts is, the real-life person she plays in the movie, the outed CIA spy Plame (above, left, with Watts on the right), ain’t chop liver herself. I’m not saying that has anything to do with this trailer for “Fair Game”, but you know, just keep that in mind. Oh, the film. It’s about how Evil Bush tried to destroy Plame and such by leaking her name to the press. Plus, Bush lied and kids died. No blood for oil. Etc, etc.
“Fair Game” is a drama about the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson. Ambassador Joseph Wilson watched his wife’s CIA status become compromised after he wrote op-ed columns that accused the Bush Administration of manipulating intelligence about weapons of mass destruction to justify the invasion of Iraq. Plame Wilson left the CIA in 2005 and she and her husband filed a civil suit against Vice President Dick Cheney, Karl Rove and Cheney’s ex-chief of staff, Lewis “Scooter” Libby. While Rove and Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage admitted they leaked her agency status to journalists, Libby was convicted of lying to a federal grand jury about his role in compromising her covert status.
Starring Naomi Watts, Sean Penn, Ty Burrell, Sam Shepard, Bruce McGill, Brooke Smith, David Denman, Michael Kelly, Iris Bahr, Khaled Nabawy, Noah Emmerich, Anand Tiwari and directed by Doug Liman.
