Since the dispatch of Bin Laden, Fair Game has become even more pertinent.
It’s the true story of CIA spook Valerie Plame (Naomi Watts), whose identity was leaked by a Bush administration angry with husband Joe Wilson’s (Sean Penn) anti-Iraq stance, causing life-threatening chaos in both her cover and covert lives.

Mr & Mrs Smith it ain’t.
