D.C. reporter Cal McCaffrey, whose street smarts lead him to untangle a mystery of murder and collusion among some of the nation's most promising political and corporate figures.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - This is a political conspiracy thriller/mystery aimed at adult moviegoers. Stars of the entire cast will be pleased though Ben Affleck fans may be disappointed by his smaller amount of screen time than co-stars Russell Crowe and Rachel McAdams. Mature subject matter makes the film inappropriate for children, who would be bored anyway.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good There's no question that State of Play feels a little rushed and the density of plot can be daunting, but the resulting tale unfolds with an urgency and sense of verisimilitude that will keep most viewers intrigued and involved without losing many along the way.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'State of Play' is a smart, ingenious thriller set in the halls of Congress and the city room of a newspaper not unlike the Washington Post.

USA Today Full Review
Good Though it is a well-crafted political thriller, State of Play may actually have more to say about the beleaguered state of print journalism than about governmental shenanigans.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Handsome, unflappable U.S. Congressman Stephen Collins (Ben Affleck) is the future of his political party: an honorable appointee who serves as the chairman of a committee overseeing defense spending. All eyes are upon the rising star to be his party's contender for the upcoming presidential race. Until his research assistant/mistress is brutally murdered and buried secrets come tumbling out.

Cal McCaffrey (Russell Crowe) has the dubious fortune of both an old friendship with Collins and a ruthless editor, Cameron (Helen Mirren), who has assigned him to investigate. As he and partner Della (Rachel McAdams) try to uncover the killer's identity, McCaffrey steps into a cover-up that threatens to shake the nation's power structures. And in a town of spin-doctors and wealthy politicos, he will discover one truth: when billions are at stake, no one's integrity, love or life is ever safe.
