The Ides Of March Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Ambition seduces and power corrupts in a nerve-wracking thriller from Academy Award® nominated director George Clooney (Good Night, and Good Luck). Idealistic campaign worker Stephen Meyers (Ryan Gosling) has sworn to give all for Governor Mike Morris (Clooney), a wild card presidential candidate whose groundbreaking ideas could change the political landscape. However, a brutal Ohio primary threatens to test Morris's integrity. Stephen gets trapped in the down-and-dirty battle and finds himself caught up in a scandal where the only path to survival is to play both sides. The all-star cast includes Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood.

Review: For our money there is no better actor in our times than George Clooney.   He has that old Hollywood feel about him that oozes likability and integrity.  He is joined in this politicial drama by an outstanding supporting cast that includes Philip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei and Paul Giamatti.  Gosling is alright, but I'm not really a fan.  This one is well-written, smooth and an easy watch.  Its a complete win and I recommend it to all audiences!

The special features on this blu-ray include: Commentary with George Clooney and Grant Heslov, Developing the Campaign: The Origin of The Ides of March, Believe: George Clooney, On The Campaign: The Cast of The Ides Of March and What Does a Political Consultant Do?

Interest Range: Drama
