State of Play £4.85 @ Zavvi & The Hut
Political thriller, State of Play, is a film adaptation of the BBC TV series starring Russell Crowe as Cal McCaffrey, a newspaper reporter for the Washington Globe.
When a thief is shot dead in an alley and the Congressman's mistress is murdered in a subway, McCaffrey starts uncovering clues, trying to link these two seemingly unrelated deaths. Soon, the journalist's investigations lead him to a much larger crime, a full-blown corporate cover-up crawling with insiders and assassins.
This could be the story every reporter dreams of, but is it worth risking your life for?
