Jeux de pouvoir

Congressman Stephen Collins (Ben Affleck) is a rising star in Washington; handsome, unflappable and seemingly honorable, he's seen as his party's next presidential nominee. Until, however, his research assistant/mistress is found murdered and damaging secrets come pouring out. Journalist Cal McAffrey (Russell Crowe), Collins' old friend, must investigate the murder, and walks headlong into a massive cover-up involving some of the nation's most promising political and corporate figures.

(no rating) Apr 17, 2009 - Chicago Tribune

Like Steven Soderbergh's "Traffic," "State of Play" compresses a British television miniseries into a stand-alone American thriller and does a pretty good job of it. It's best to see the remake first and catch up with the 2003 BBC miniseries afterward. That way you can enjoy the new version for what it is - a sleek, reliable Hollywood package, wrapped in a mournful last hurrah for print investigative journalism - instead of experiencing it through the prism of its superb predecessor, which came from a different era, one in which movie characters didn't go out of their way to remind audiences that "nobody reads the papers anymore."
