The Ides of March

The Ides of March ★★½

Great performances from an outstanding cast, but so very depressing. I feel like this hopeless portrayal of political backstabbing and dirty work squeezed out all my hope for the future, and I'm not even American! The progression of Ryan Gosling's character really reminded me of Al Pacino in the Godfather, he even gets a little "don't ask me about my work" moment at the end there.
