The Ides of March


The Ides of March is a drama about a young, consultant, idealist staffer Stephen Meyers (Ryan Gosling) gets involved in the dirty conspiracy of American politics while working on a new Presidential candidate Governor Mike Norris (George Clooney).

There is no releaving plots or twisted turn-ups in here, it's just an example of the dirty politics of precisely calculated public images, scripted speeches, promising seats as a form of corruption. Meyers discovers the true face of the business, I mean the true face might still be hiding, and plays it along even if it is not as idealistic as he wanted it to be. Well, dirty business it is.

George Clooney did an amazing job directing The Ides of March, plus Ryan Gosling as the protagonist of the story made it my personal favourite.

Totally recommended.
