Naomi Watts, Sean Penn and Noah Emmerich in the Fair Game trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Come on, it was only a matter of time before Sean Penn would star in a political drama revolving around the supposed nuclear weapons in Iraq. Not that it’s a big deal, it’s just a little predictable. In the film FAIR GAME, Naomi Watts plays a CIA officer leading an investigation into WMD’s in Iraq. Meanwhile, her diplomat husband (Sean Penn) gets involved in the investigation and when he writes an editorial, a subsequent investigation reveals his wife as an agent. Sound familiar? I guess they couldn’t get the rights to the story of Valerie Plame and Joseph C. Wilson. Which is a shame, because their story is fascinating.
I also have to take exception to the title, FAIR GAME. For all pre-teen boys in the early 90’s, “FAIR GAME” only meant one thing; Cindy Crawford. I saw the movie a dozen times, but still can’t remember what it’s about. Watch the trailer here.
