Fair Game
Genre: Drama
Director:
Doug Liman
Stars: Naomi Watts, Sean Penn
****

 

The headline-derived Fair Game never gets as angry as it might, despite the considerable outrage expended by Naomi Watts and Sean Penn in their roles as American patriots wronged by their government. But that’s what makes it interesting. Doug Liman’s docudrama is almost shockingly even-handed in the way it depicts how the Bush Administration in 2003 unmasked CIA agent Valerie Plame (Watts), risking her life.
