State of Play

PhotobucketPhotobucketAmerican adaptation of the hit British miniseries about an investigation into the murder of the research assistant (and mistress) of a prominent rising congressman. Everything from the authentic performances to the intelligent script, feels right in this political thriller. Although its glorification of the press can be a bit obsequious at times, this is a welcome throwback to the classic films of the 70s like All the Presidents Men. Actual Washington, D.C. locations add to the superior production values.
