Description
The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman teams with screenwriters Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth to streamline Joseph Wilson's and Valerie Plame's books detailing the explosive outing of undercover CIA agent Plame into a tense docudrama thriller starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn. At the time her cover was blown by the George W. Bush administration, Plame (Watts) was combing Iraq for evidence of weapons of mass destruction as part of the CIA's Counter-Proliferation Division. Her husband, American diplomat Joe Wilson was attempting to verify a claim that the Iraqis had recently purchased enriched uranium from Niger when the White House began beating the war drums before any solid evidence had been gathered. When Joe penned an editorial in The New York Times decrying the hasty call to war, a prolific Washington, D.C. journalist took the opportunity to reveal Plame's identity as a CIA operative, an act that not only put her career in jeopardy, but also left her various contacts overseas in a precarious position. Years later, a jobless and publicly disgraced Plame wages a vicious fight to clear her name, set the record straight, and keep her family from falling apart. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

display_description In the run-up to the Iraq War, Valerie Plame, a supervisor of covert operations at the CIA, is assigned to determine if Saddam has nuclear weapons. In secret, she interviews scientists inside Iraq and suggests that her husband, a former diplomat, go to Niger to investigate a report from the Vice President's office that Iraq bought enriched uranium there. When the country goes to war, in part based on the President's claim that the sale took place, Plame's husband, Joe Wilson, writes in the New York Times that the report is false. The White House smears the couple to change the subject. Her career ruined, his credibility under attack, their marriage starts to crack. Can they find trust and fight back? Based on the autobiography of undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame, whose covert identity was exposed when her husband, retired Ambassador Joe Wilson, wrote a newspaper article challenging the basis for the claim that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
