Fair Game

Naomi Watts stars in this accurate depiction of Valerie Plame, the C.I.A. agent who's identity was revealed by the Bush Administration and whose life completely fell apart. Sean Penn co-stars as Valerie's ambassador husband who can not get enough of himself and completely juices his wife's reveal to try and take on the entire Bush Administration all by himself. The story of Valerie is so astounding and terrible that it couldn't be intriguing, and was only helped by the gritty director of The Bourne Ultimatum, who made a good structure for the film, but Naomi and Sean's semi-half-assed acting made this movie a disappointment. If the actors had put more work into their roles, it would be a great film and total Oscar bait.
My review: C
