With its all-star cast (Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Marisa Tomei, Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman) and topical subject matter, "The Ides of March" -- based on Beau Willimon's play "Farragut North" -- sounds like a winner on paper. Still, the buzz doesn't sound especially good, and the trailer looks like "State of Play" et al. over again, so I'm not sure what to think. I'll probably still see it, even if they're using Detroit as Washington (I did the same thing as a child)! Has anyone seen it?
Here's George Clooney -- and the gang -- pimping the film today at the Venice International Film Festival.
