The Ides of March (2011)

Rated R

A young ambitious press spokesman works for a cutthroat  presidential campaign. Starring Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Evan Rachel Wood, Marisa Tomei, Jeffrey Wright, Max Minghella, Jennifer Ehle

I have to give props to George Clooney for trying to keep this film neutral on political sides. Although, I think Clooney’s political distaste came through on this film. The script would have been just as good as any other thriller, it didn’t need to a political. The acting, of course, was superb especially Ryan Gosling. This film is how I hope our political candidates do not vie for office but alas I do think this happens. It’s worth a watch for the thriller part.

    I agree. Gosling was excellent as Stephen Meyers, and the entire film was enthralling to watch. Really recommend it to everyone!
