To watch or not to watch: "Fair Game" tells about White House & government

Movie Review

As a covert officer in the CIA's Counter-Proliferation Division, Valerie Plame (Naomi Watts) leads an investigation into the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Valerie's husband, diplomat Joseph Wilson (Sean Penn), is drawn into the investigation to substantiate an alleged sale of enriched uranium from Niger. But when the administration ignores his findings and uses the issue to support the call to war, Joseph writes a New York Times editorial outlining his conclusions and ignites a firestorm of controversy.

I would rate this movie 3 stars against 5. Based on my understanding from the movie with no prior information before watching it,this is a non-fiction movie is about America's politics. It is based on Valerie Plame (played by Naomi Watts) who used to work as a CIA agent,who got dismissed from her job because of a lie made government to initiate war against Iraq. She,together with her husband Joseph Wilson (played by Sean Peann) voiced out against the lie,against the White House. It is quite an interesting movie to watch,of how they deal with the situation.
The movie however is not 100% accurate. For more information,read here.

An intresting quote that goes something like this in the movie:

Because someone could shout a million times more or louder than you,it doesn't make that person right.

Food for thought? Yes please.
