The original UK mini-series State of Play, is a tight thriller/detective story in the style of All the President's Men, with some pretty great performances from the all-star cast.
Way better than the feature film. A great mystery for mystery lovers. Terrific acting. Don't let the mundane nature of the film steer you away from this.
Definitely worth watching even if you've seen the film. It's almost three times as long, so there's a lot more to the story, plus the UK cast blow the US one out of the water -- much as I love Helen Mirren, Bill Nighy's version is superior; Jason Bateman wasn't even close to as good as Marc Warren; and James McAvoy's character isn't even in the remake!
