We sit down with writer Beau Willimon and The Ides of March star Evan Rachel Wood
The Ides of March takes place during the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary. George Clooney plays Governor Mike Morris who is one of the prime candidates in the race. An ideal candidate, he proposes the US leaves its Oil addiction behind and adopt a greater economic equality. Morris seems charismatic, charming and determined to win the elections with his clean and honest image.
Things take a turn for the worse when his up-and-coming campaign press secretary Stephen Meyer (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate's shot at the presidency.
