Cynical and depressing, The Ides of March draws you in and then holds you, tense, on the edge of your seat. An excellent political drama that somehow manages to surprise you even though you think you know what’s coming and where it’s headed.
A great directorial effort by Clooney and another superb performance by Gosling.
