Our patience was rewarded. The Ides of March starring Ryan Gosling, the aforementioned hunk and a strong support cast is an excellent – no make that terrific rental.
It had undertones of The Graduate as we watch the political campaign process unfold – morphing Ryan Gosling from a naive volunteer to a ruthless Political Operative that will do what it takes to elect his candidate and get what he wants along the way.
I rate home rentals by how many breaks we take. The Ides of March moved along at such a nice pace that we only paused it twice – once for drinks and one for a potty break.
Marty and I both enjoyed The Ides of March and we recommend it to you strongly as a rental. I liked it so much I’d say go ahead and pay the five dollars now and not wait until it goes to free service on a Premium Channel.
