Plot Summary
As Ohio's Democratic primary nears, charming Gov. Mike Morris (George Clooney) seems a shoo-in for the nomination over his opponent, Sen. Pullman (Michael Mantell). Morris' idealistic press secretary, Stephen Meyers (Ryan Gosling), believes in his candidate's integrity and the democratic process. But Meyers' meeting with Pullman's campaign manager (Paul Giamatti) and a dalliance with a young intern (Evan Rachel Wood) set in motion events that threaten Morris' election chances.

  • A big, bruisingly funny moral fable etched in acid and Obama disillusion. show more

  • That's one of the puzzles of this piece. You'd think a film with talent to burn - would provide some electrifying encounters at the very least. No such luck. Words fly, some of them medium-witty, but lightning doesn't strike. show more

  • This taut cautionary tale explores the dark side of American politics. And leaves the viewer to wonder - if anyone's still wondering - is there a bright side? show more

    Loved it, although not a big Clooney fan. Story line, acting, musical background were great. I thought it was one of the best pictures of the year.

    Leave it to Hollywood to slip jabs at how bad Republicans while making a movie about Democrats acting badly. Otherwise, a pretty good movie. I don\'t get the \"Best Actor\" talk about Clooney. He was a supporting character at best. Gosling was the star and did a very recdible acting job. Worth renting, but, don\'t buy it.

    I thought the movie was so true to life and could fit almost any candidate anymore but I don\'t see why George Clooney was the award for this. The real star of this movie was Ryan Glosing for sure. Clooney really wan\'t even in it all that muich.
