The true story of Valerie Plame - outed as a CIA agent by a journalist after her ex-ambassador husband, Joseph Wilson, criticized what he considered the too-quick invasion of Iraq - is recounted by director Doug Liman ("The Bourne Identity") in this well-acted drama.
Naomi Watts and Sean Penn, who worked together previously in "21 Grams," are reteamed as the couple. Sam Shepard and Ty Burrell ("Modern Family") co-star. DVD extra: audio commentary by the real Plame and Wilson. *** (PG-13: P) (Also on Blu-ray)
