George Clooney might never be able to run for public office because as he said, “I’ve slept with too many women, I’ve done too many drugs, and I’ve been to too many parties,” but that doesn’t stop him from playing someone who runs for the presidency. Based on a play called “Farragut North,” the story in The Ides of March is loosely based on the 2004 democratic primaries.

I’m sold. I’m not exactly sure who’s on what side and who the good guys are, but there are some very serious people doing some serious dramatizing in there.

Here’s the poster as well:


Which … well, it’s visually arresting I suppose, but I don’t quite get what it means. Is it saying that Gosling’s character is the man behind the throne? That those are both pretty men? Or simply pointing out that no one cares who is on the cover of Time Magazine anymore?
