State of Play is an absorbing movie revolving around a group of seemingly unrelated murders. It
hits the ground running (literally) and continues keeping you on the edge of your seat right to the end. Russell Crowe plays a seen-it-all newspaper man who comes to the aid of his college friend, a Congressman played by Ben Affleck. Affleck's character becomes a suspect in the investigation into the death of his aide, a young woman whom he hired at the request of a friend and fellowCongressman. Crowe sets out to solve the mystery and save his friend, but the situation is complicated by Crowe's past affair with Affleck's wife. Helen Mirren does a good job as the Editor of a floundering newspaper, and Robin Wright Penn is adequate, if a little stereotypical, as Crowe's assigned partner in the story.
This is a really well done movie. Do yourself a favor and go see it.
