About The Film
A suspense-filled glimpse into the dark corridors of political power, Fair Game is an action-thriller based on the autobiography of real-life undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson (Naomi Watts), whose career was destroyed and marriage strained to its limits when her covert identity was exposed by a politically motivated press leak.
As a covert officer in the CIA’s Counter-Proliferation Division, Valerie’s work involved identifying the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq before the United States declared war. Her husband, diplomat Ambassador Joe Wilson was hired by the CIA for a fact-finding mission as part of the investigation. When the Bush administration ignored his findings and used them to support the call to war, Joe contradicted the White House in The New York Times, igniting a firestorm of controversy.
