Two Line Reviews - #339

Movie: The Ides of March (2011)

Plot: A governor running for President in the elections has to win a decisive battle at Ohio. A talented staffer in his clan is sought after by the opposition. A glimmer of coveting is enough to spoil the political career of the budding talent or does he get a second-chance to play a trump card?!

  • This film directed by George Clooney is high on political drama and an action of words, dialogues; The conversations are intense and attention-grabbing.
  • Ryan Gosling has the meaty role which he plays well and Philipp Seymour Hoffman gets a good scope to show skills as well; Surprisingly, Clooney restricts his role to a smaller one.
  • The twists on the tale around the offer made to Ryan are good and accompanied by a brisk background score,carries the film forward at a good pace.
Intense political drama.
