State of Play

Congressman Stephen Collins (Ben Affleck) is a rising star in Washington; handsome, unflappable and seemingly honorable, he's seen as his party's next presidential nominee. Until, however, his research assistant/mistress is found murdered and damaging secrets come pouring out. Journalist Cal McAffrey (Russell Crowe), Collins' old friend, must investigate the murder, and walks headlong into a massive cover-up involving some of the nation's most promising political and corporate figures.

What a state!

My wife and I saw this and thought it was excellent. She's now looking for a book with the same title, to get all those little snips and nuances you miss in a film.
I never saw the BBC series it was based on, sadly. Bet it was good.
Russell Crowe looks as if he never takes a bath/shower - but that seems to be him, these days.
If you've not seen it - go while it's still on!
