Two new films with themes of interest to progressive activists open this weekend.

Inside Job

Cast: Matt Damon, William Ackman, Daniel Alpert, Jonathan Alpert, Sigridur Benediktsdottir 
 
From Academy Award® nominated filmmaker, Charles Ferguson, comes "Inside Job," the first film to expose the shocking truth behind the economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs . Through extensive research and interviews with major financial insiders, politicians and journalists, "Inside Job" traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia.
 

Fair Game

‎1hr 48min‎‎ - Rated PG-13‎‎ - Drama‎
Cast: Naomi Watts, Sean Penn, Ty Burrell, Michael Kelly, Bruce McGill 
Dramatization of the Valerie Plame affair that got Dick Cheney into serious trouble with the law.
As a covert officer in the CIA's Counter-Proliferation Division, Valerie leads an investigation into the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Valerie's husband, diplomat JOE WILSON (Sean Penn), is drawn into the investigation to substantiate an alleged sale of enriched uranium from Niger. But when the administration ignores his findings and uses the issue to support the call to war, Joe writes a New York Times editorial outlining his conclusions and ignites a firestorm of controversy.
