The Ides of March


Based on the play “Farragut North” by Beau Willimon, “The Ides of March” is the smart and engaging story of Mike Morris (George Clooney… director and co-writer as well) a liberal thinking politician vying for the Democratic nomination for president.

Ryan Gosling gives a solid performance as Stephen Meyers…Morris’ campaign press secretary who ends-up in a political scandal that threatens their White House hopes.

Excellent cast: Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Jeffrey Wright, and Evan Rachel Wood

People talk about the surprising political corruption depicted in this film…if anything it’s a mild look at the real thing.

“Ides…” doesn't quite reach the level of excitement that it should.

Rated R
1 hr. 38 min.
