On the way out, a couple waiting in line for the next show asked if we had liked the film. They
asked if it was "real". They were unsure whether this was a narrative or not. We can't forget what happened. We can't forget how our government, specifically Bush-Cheney lied about the Iraq war and sent hundreds of thousands of people to their deaths -- Americans, Europeans, Iraquis, the list is endless. It didn't need to happen, and Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame had the courage to -- and paid the personal costs of -- saying that out loud at the time. Sean Penn is great in his role, and Naomi Watts portrayal of Valerie Plame gives you an idea of why she (Plame) was number one in her training class at the CIA's "Farm".
This film is unusual in many ways -- in its gorgeous production values, unusual dialog, unflinching
story telling (just to name three) -- and has left me with an incredible sense of having seen and experienced others lives from their footsteps. If you see it, you'll be talking about it to your friends for days.
