The Ides of March

4.5 stars Margaret 3 stars David from ABC's at the Movies

A staffer finds his idealism and beliefs taking a back seat to backroom political dealings and manipulative power plays.

An American Presidential election is looming, and in the crucial Ohio primary contest between Democratic front-runners, small 'l' liberal Governor Mike Morris, GEORGE CLOONEY, looks like winning over his more conservative rival, Senator Pullman, MICHAEL MANTELL. Morris' staff include campaign manager Paul Zara, PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN, and press secretary Stephen Meyers, RYAN GOSLING, while Pullman's campaign is being run by Tom Duffy, PAUL GIAMATTI, who thinks Stephen would be an asset for his team.
