A good movie

Since I am a fan of Naomi Watts and even more of Sean Penn, I definitely had to watch this flick. Apparently, it was a flop when it was released but I thought it was actually pretty good. Indeed, it is a realistic thriller-drama which deals with spies and politics and I thought the whole thing was actually quite fascinating. At first, it reminded me of 'Green Zone' another movie dealing with the fact that the USA went to war for some phony reasons. However, this flick went further than this and it developed some interesting themes such as patriotism, loyalty (to your country but also to your husband/wife) and truth. I almost gave it a higher rating but the whole thing was still not really satisfactory partly because it was too short (about 95 minutes) to really develop such interesting ideas but above all because it was really too much biased. Indeed, Plame and Wilson were only portrayed as poor victims and I thought a more balanced approach would have been more interesting. Still, it remains a fascinating story, with some very good acting and some solid directing by Doug Liman. To conclude, even though it didn't really reach its full potential, I really liked it and I think it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
