Ides of March

I don't go to the theater very often, but when I do, I'm reminded of how pleasant the experience can be.

This holds true even when the movie isn't "all that." Such was the case yesterday when I saw Ides of March. So predictable, it was almost boring. Well, it WAS boring - until the big plot secret is revealed - maybe 30 or 45 minutes into the movie.

That said, watching good actors and beautiful people - like George - is always pleasant.

This flick came with a decent recommendation from family and friends, so I'd love to hear what you think.

To back up my 'recommendation,'I liked watching the goings on of an election through the eyes of a press secretary. I found this movie to be a tense drama throughout. The scheming and back-stabbing while winning votes. Again, Philip Seymour Hoffman is cast perfectly as the devoted admirer of the governor..and just tries pushing all the right buttons! I give the movie 3 stars!
