Two words: Ryan. Gosling!
Forget his charms in Crazy Stupid Love or Drive. This is the real deal if you want more of Gosling's charismatic performance.
The Ides of March is about Steve (Gosling) who worked as a campaign officer for Senator Morris (George Clooney) in the upcoming Presidential election in US. Somehow he endured several events that challenged his credibility and loyalty to the campaign. Co-stars include Evan Rachel Wood, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and others.
A good politics-drama flick. Clear to digest and superb performance by Gosling. Oscar nomination for sure!!! I rated it 4/5 stars!
