First Clip from THE IDES OF MARCH

     August 30, 2011

George Clooney’s The Ides of March is one of my must-see films of the fall.  For those unfamiliar with the flick, here’s the brief synopsis:

During the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, an up-and-coming campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate’s shot at the presidency.

The first clip from the film has gone online and it shows some banter between Gosling and a young intern played by Evan Rachel Wood.  It’s light and playful but I think the movie itself handles far weightier themes.  Hit the jump to check out the clip.  The film also stars Clooney, Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei, and Jeffrey Wright.  The Ides of March will play at the Toronto International Film Festival before opening nationwide on October 7th.
