(Dirty Politics…is there any other kind?)
Ryan Gosling (as Stephen Meyers), is extremely intelligent, hardworking, and devoted to George Clooney (as Gov. Mike Morris).
As Clooney’s run for President picks up steam, Gosling hooks up with sexy intern, Evan Rachel Wood (as Molly Stearns). During this affair, he finds out startling information about Wood and Clooney.
The fantastic, Paul Giamatti (as Tom Duffy), tried to lure Gosling away from Clooney, but is rebuffed. That is….until the startling news, when Gosling decides to defect to the Giamatti camp. Not so easy. Turns out….he has been f**ked over by Duffy. Dirty politics. Yikes!
The movie was kinda boring in the beginning. but as the plot lines developed…..WOW! Not for kids, f-words fly appropriately, and the plot is for adults. Not sure if teens would like it…I mean Clooney, Hoffman,……oh yeah…..Gosling he could do it.
Oh….Marisa Tomei (as Reporter, Ida Horowicz) is absolutely terrific.
If you do not know where the term “ides of march” comes from….go here (it has something to do with Caesar).
Drive Safe! Never Forget.
