Movie Info

In his quest for power, D.C. aide Michael Lawson will do anything to take part in Senator Baines's White House campaign, including blackmailing Baines's shady advisor (Adrian Grenier, TV's "Entourage") and sleeping with the candidate's wife (Mimi Rogers). But when he gets involved with the senator's alluring daughter, Lawson learns his dangerous game could have a deadly payoff. Also starring Thora Birch (Patriot Games), this pulse-pounding thriller is a perfect match for today's turbulent political climate.

Critic Reviews for Affairs of State

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Director Eric Bross's Affairs of State is a political thriller that plays like an adaptation of a trashy romance novel.

June 14, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

In an era when so many indies are either genre exercises or quirky dramedies, a well-acted, ripped-from-the-headlines melodrama is a novelty.

If the movie were self-aware enough to understand its true nature as glorious direct-to-video junk, it would look a whole lot less pretty, but its lurid cheap thrills would be more thrilling and lurid.

August 14, 2018 | Full Review…

A gripping, provocative and refreshingly unpredictable political thriller.
