Sometimes life is stranger than fiction. Fair Game relates the true story of CIA operative Valerie Plame (Naomi Watts). When Plame’s husband ex-Ambassador Joe Wilson (Sean Penn) publishes a New York Times opinion piece disputing the Bush administration’s claim that Niger sold yellowcake uranium to Iraq, the White House retaliates and leaks Plame’s name to the press. The leak endangers Plame and her international contacts. A disturbing fact-based political thriller.
