"State of Play" came at the right place and at the right time. In the last few months, newspapers across this count had even folded or went into bankruptcy. Could this movie be the last of the big journalist movies? I hope not. They're are still entertaining and i hope we have more of them in the near future. the film is based on the 6-part BBC mini-series. In this film version the location has changed from London to Washington DC. Russell Crowne plays a sloppy journalist who is investingating a connection between the death of a mistress and a link to a congressman played by Ben Affleck, which leads to something even big. I love the strong cast which includes Helen Miran,Jason Batman, Rachael McAdams and Jeff Daniels. This film will have you on the edge of your seat. that is a good thing.
