The Ides of March

This political drama with usually excellent actors like George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Marisa Tomei, did absolutely nothing for me. Not that their acting had suddenly turned bad, not that the story wasn’t promising and not that there wasn’t any drama, but I was not gripped by the going ones at all.
