Ides of March

After a much-needed week off, we return to “Movie Monday” with “Ides of March.” With a spectacular leading cast and a setup made for the big screen, do we endorse and pledge our delegates to the ticket, or vote it down as mere Oscar bait?

“Ides of March” stars Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Philip Seymore Hoffman, Evan Rachel Wood, Paul Giamatti, and Marisa Tomei.
