State of Play: Film Review

Mr. Julep and I have wanted to see State of Play since we first saw the trailer a while back and boy were we surprised! This film was even better than I thought it would be! It's suspenseful and timely as well as extremely well written, directed and acted in my opinion! It's a great film!

I'm not normally a fan of Russell Crowe, but he's excellent in this film. And though I like Rachel McAdams, she's not my favorite, but she's perfect against Crowe and they work well together on screen!

Helen Mirren is perfect as usual, but in this movie, you get to really see her ballsiness! Love it!

And after seeing this film, I can honestly say that I think Ben Affleck is turning into a force to be reckoned with! He's excellent as Senator Collins in State of Play. He's one to watch for sure as he seems to be really growing into his craft, becoming a top-notch actor in my opinion.

Robin Wright Penn has a fairly small part as the Senator's wife, but she's perfect for the role. And she's gorgeous in this movie (as usual).

All in all, I'd say this movie has the most unlikely cast for a really GREAT film, yet together, they are magnificent! Pink Julep fully recommends this movie for your next rental if you didn't catch it in the theatres! Happy Movie Watching!
Pink Julep!


  1. Good - I've been wanting to order this but wasn't sure how it was. It wasn't in theaters for too long and that always makes me nervous. Thanks!

  2. I watched this movie on Saturday - the suspense was almost too much for me! (Also, I'm a wimp.)

    Either way, I thought it was a really great movie... and I LOVE me some Rachel McAdams!

  3. How freaking hilarious was Jason Bateman in that? The hubs and I were dying over his character!
