Rent it: State of Play

State of Play is a solid political thriller with plenty of twists. Ben Affleck plays an up-and-coming star in the political world until his aide/mistress turns up dead. The story is made more interesting because it unfolds through the investigative eyes of Russell Crowe's character, a newspaper reporter and the congressman's personal friend. Helen Mirren, Rachel McAdams, and Jason Bateman round out the all-star cast. Check it out!
