The Ides Of March: Ryan Gosling’s in it, what more reason do you need to watch?

It doesn’t get more star-studded than this: George Clooney pleases the old guard in the lead role as a presidential candidate in The Ides Of March, while Ryan Gossling plays his idealistic campaign manager. The film also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood, Paul Giamatti and Jeffrey Wright, and it’s as good as political thrillers get.

Scandal abounds (involving a young intern – very Monica Lewinsky) in a film where power corrupts and ambition seduces. Up there with the previous likes of The Candidate, Advise And Consent, That Special Relationship, and The Best Man. Watch it.
