The film takes its name from a reference in Shakespeare’s play Caesar in July to the ides, or middle of March and the sense of doom that accompanies it. The film is a smart political drama with a different sense of doom that is already generating Oscar buzz.

Stephen Meyers believes in Morris. But as he tries to expose the governor’s political agenda, the clash of two. Morris is adamant, and Meyers is concerned that the governor could lose.
Tom Duffy is the campaign manager for opponent Morris. Duffy tries to undermine the governor for the theft of Stephen Meyers.

With that knowledge, Gouverneur Morris blackmailing to get hired again and forces him to make political concessions.
Through his holy covenant, the campaign manager of ambitious political and morally committed his way to the top.

WOMAN2: “All the backdoor deals always happen.”
George Clooney also directed the film and co-wrote the script.
In addition to Ryan Gosling and Stephen Meyers, Paul Giamatti plays Tom Duffy. Oscar winners Philip Seymour Hoffman and Marisa Tomei completes a stellar cast.
Clooney said that although the film is fiction that accurately depicts today’s politics.
“If somehow this film reflects the cynicism we’ve seen in recent times, which is probably good,” said Clooney. “It’s not a bad thing to hold a mirror and look at some of the things we’re doing. Not a bad thing to see how we elect our officials.”
The Ides of March is the latest in a series of films that reflected the American political psyche. One of the most emblematic was Alan J. Pakula ‘s “All the President’s Men.” Is the chronicle of the disintegration of the Nixon administration in the 1970s as two Washington Post reporters exposed the cover up Watergate.
The Ides of March, focuses on a new threat: the fierce political, political amorality, cynicism and takes it to new heights.
