"The Shadow of Power" directed by Kevin Macdonald


“The ambitious and unflappable congressman Stephen Collins (Ben Affleck) is considered the future of the party: an honorable man who chairs the Committee in charge of controlling defense spending. High hopes are pinned on this rising star to become a national leader, until his beautiful young assistant dies in a tragic way and secrets begin to get out. Journalist Cal McAffrey has the questionable fortune of being good friends with Congressman Collins and the tough editor Cameron Lynne (Helen Mirren), who assigns him the story."

Taken from The Armchair.
