The Ides of March features Ryan Gosling (Hollywood's best and most versatile young actor?) among a very talented roster of actors: George Clooney, Paul Giamatti, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
It is the story of what happens behind the scenes of an election.
It is also a story of what happens when you learn that in politics, you have to play others before they play you.
I liked this movie. It didn't try to do too much, but what it did it did well.
