This movie was a political drama about powerful men and what goes on behind the scenes . George Clooney, who by the way, is one of my favorite actors, plays the candidate who is on his way to the presidency. His charm and elegance is there, but his campaign becomes threatened when an indescretion with an intern is discovered by one of his top aides. Ryan Gosling, who plays the aide learns a lot about himself and a hard lesson in loyalty. It is a good movie about the insightful world of politics.
