Ides of March: Entertaining political thriller

There aren't enough political movies made in Hollywood so the bar isn't set particularly high. However, Ides of March is entertaining nonetheless. Packed with a lot of very smart actors and a good play (Farragut North by Beau Willimon)  it was probably easy enough for George Clooney to make a low-budget Oscar-style end-of-the-year film. Clooney wrote the screenplay, produced, directed and starred in this film. Ryan Gosling does a good job and seems like a young Clooney in making.

Watch it for an entertaining cast and the season. The film offers not too much else.
