(KCBS) – KCBS movie critic Jan Wahl reviews the drama starring Sean Penn and Naomi Watts.

The same director who gave us The Bourne Identity has decided to take on this real story of espionage. Fair Game (PG-13) is about Valerie Plane Wilson, the CIA operative famously outed by the Bush White House after her husband, the former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, accused the White House of lying in order to invade Iraq. Naomi Watts and Sean Penn play the couple with authenticity and lack of melodrama.
