Reviews
  • LATimes.com: An engaging hybrid of "The Graduate" and "House of Cards", the political potboiler "Affairs of State" benefits greatly from being both timely and, for this day and age, uncommon. Refreshingly smart about how real feelings can get in the way of callous calculation.
  • Nycmovieguru.com:  a gripping political thriller that becomes increasingly dark and refreshingly unpredictable.
  • Doblu.com: Director Eric Bross has fashioned a campy, ripped-from-the-headlines thriller built around the supposed sexual exploits going on in D.C.
  • Filmintuition.com: An ambitious feature.
