FRI­DAY THE IDES OF MARCH

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.40PM, GEM ★★★★

The Ides of March is a sharp, in­tel­li­gent af­fair, a gilt­edged guess­ing game that knows how to keep the mind in­quir­ing through­out. Ge­orge Clooney (also di­rec­tor and co-writer) plays Mike Mor­ris, a state gov­er­nor near­ing the end of a cam­paign that could see him be­come the next Demo­crat can­di­date for pres­i­dent. The ris­ing star in the Mor­ris team is Stephen Mey­ers (Ryan Gosling), a me­dia strate­gist with all the an­swers. And most of the ques­tions in ad­vance as well. A fine ex­am­ple of top­i­cal, in­tel­li­gent and com­pelling main­stream cinema.
