The Ides of March

I decided to go see this even though I really don't like politics.  The movie works overall as a decent thriller, though I do think that certain things about the story could have been handled better.  There are a few minor surprises, but things end up being predictable.  Despite that, I still enjoyed the movie overall.  It did move slower, and I did feel like it was longer than it really needed to be. 

The characters are sort of interesting, though most of them don't receive that much attention.  Steven Meyers, the guy working on the campaign who fully believes in his candidate is the most developed character.  The movie is really about him and certain things he comes to realize.  The acting is really good, though a few of the cast don't get enough to do.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie and think it is worth seeing.

I did get a review posted at Epinions.
