About State Of Play
Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe leads an all-star cast in this blistering thriller about a rising congressman and an investigative journalist embroiled in a case of seemingly unrelated, brutal killings. Crowe portrays the D.C. reporter who untangles a mystery of murder and collusion that connects unexpectedly to an unflappable young politician (Ben Affleck) who is the future of his political party. As the investigation continues, it reveals a cover-up that threatens to shake the nation's power structures to their very core. Helmed by acclaimed director Kevin Macdonald, State of Play also stars Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren, Rachel McAdams, Jason Bateman and Robin Wright-Penn.
