Valerie Plame, former covert CIA ops officer, and Director/Producer Doug Liman in person for Q&A
As a covert officer in the CIA’s Counter-Proliferation Division, Valerie leads an investigation into the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Valerie’s husband, diplomat JOE 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, Joe writes a New York Times editorial outlining his conclusions and ignites a firestorm of controversy.
“This isn’t a message movie, per se, but a strong point of view comes through regardless: In the battle of principles vs. politics, politics always win.”— Peter Howell, Toronto Star
“An absorbing, unhysterical thriller that largely rejects the clichés of the genre.”–David Jenkins, Time Out
