An editor from The Washington Post was a consultant for the film, and you can read about his experience here. I'm sure he never guessed his career would take him to a play with Rachel McAdams!
Movies about Journalists
"State of Play" arrives in theaters today, supposedly a high-powered intelligent drama about the clash between a journalist, his informant, and the corrupt corporation. It sounds intriguing to me, but not just because Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck star. The real reason is because I love watching movies/shows about journalists, maybe because it reminds me of the old days. I know my "old days" were short, but they were loved. And I know I'm not the only one who loves to watch journalists in action. (And yes, I am aware this site is a blatant rip-off of another).
