Print this article Ryan Gosling is one of the best young actors in Hollywood and George Clooney has been a star for decades, so when the two collaborated in "Ides of March" the result was, not surprisingly, memorable. The taut political thriller comes to DVD on January 17.
The film follows Mike Morris (Clooney), the governor of Pennsylvania who is in the midst of a tough presidential campaign. Stephen Meyer (Gosling) is Morris' junior campaign manager and his loyalty is brought into question when the opposition's campaign manager (Paul Giamatti) offers him a spot on his staff.
Feeling guilty, Meyer confides in Morris' campaign manager Paul Zara (Philip Seymour Hoffman) of the meeting. Despite the fact that he stayed on board, Zara fires Meyer anyway for agreeing to the meeting in the first place. That's not the end of things, however, and his departure sets in a motion a series of events that will change the complexion of the campaign for good.
The film is one in a long line of great films for both actors. Gosling earned an Oscar nomination for his work in "Half Nelson" and Clooney took home the award for Best Supporting Actor for "Syriana."
