George Clooney is one of the few actor turned director who is consistently coming up with some awesome movies. Except Leatherheads which I have not seen I have loved all his films including this one.Whats it about? - Governer Mike Morris (George Clooney) is running for the president. Stephen Meyers (Ryan Gosling) is an idealistic staff member who believes in Mike. The film is about the workings of an election campaign with a scandal erupting within the team.Does it work for me ? YesWhy? - The film is so gripping that I felt it was too short. I wanted it to go on. I dont understand politics in India or in the US so a script that deals with a political campaign and still manages to keep me interested is applause worthy. Also after watching Ryan Gosling in Drive his performance in this film becomes an added attraction. George Clooney thankfully lets Gosling steal the show offering able support. Paul Giamatti and Philips Seymour Hoffman are such strong actors that the roles didnt justify them in this film. Even Marisa Tomeis character was not exploited well in the story. In spite of delivering a solid performance I felt the cast was wasted. There are some wonderful lines in the film. Whether you are Clooney's fan or Goslings and if you like them both this film is a double treat.Final few words: The Ides of March is smart, witty and intense.Rating : *** 1/2Ticket Meter : Worth 200 bucks
