Dear MoveOn member,
After the outcome of the mid-term elections, it's good to be reminded that one person CAN make a difference when they stand up for the truth.
This weekend, MoveOn members in the Inwood area have a special opportunity to be among the first to see Fair Game—an important new film about one couple's fight for justice against the Bush administration.
The headlines about what happened to former CIA operative Valerie Plame and former ambassador Joe Wilson are well known. After Joe Wilson debunked the key piece of evidence in the Bush administration's march to war in Iraq, Dick Cheney and Karl Rove decided to mount a media attack that made Joe Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, "fair game." They outed Plame's undercover status and jeopardized not only her life, but also the lives of her family and contacts in the field.

Directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), Fair Game is the unknown story behind the headlines, illuminating Valerie and Joe's struggle for the truth in the face of seemingly insurmountable adversity and opposition.
We've seen the film and want to share it with you all as we head into some tough fights in the next two years.
Check out what people are saying about the film...
"One of the best movies of the year. Naomi Watts gives one of the best performances of her career. Very powerful."—Richard Roeper, RichardRoeper.com1
".... globe-trotting and intelligent, serious and substantial, deliberately paced yet filled with mounting suspense...It's the rare movie that's not quite long enough."—Christy Lemire, Associated Press2
"4 Stars...the most riveting Washington thriller since All The President's Men."—Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star-Tribune3
Valerie and Joe fought back and never gave up. That's a message we know MoveOn members will feel deeply. We hope to see you at the theater.
Thank you for all you do.
