Our Brand is Crisis TIFF 2015 review
With his latest film, The Ides of March, George Clooney reasserts himself as one of the best actor-directors working today. As a throwback to the political potboilers of the 1970s and 80s, Ides doesn’t break any terribly new ground, but much like Clooney’s previous directorial efforts it is a solidly constructed and tightly paced film with great performances from an all star cast.
Two of the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival's biggest (or at least its most star-studded) gala presentations take place today: the Brad Pitt n' baseball crowd-pleaser Moneyball and the George Clooney directed political thriller The Ides of March, starring Ryan Gosling. Our Andrew Parker has seen both films and lets us know whether or not these celebrity-filled galas are worth the rather hefty price of admission.
