Dem lawmaker reviews 'Ides of March'

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) contributed to the box office haul this weekend of George Clooney's political thriller "The Ides of March."
“Saw Ides of March last night,” Connolly (D-Va.) tweeted Monday. “Great acting. Silly and cynical plot that has little resemblance to a real campaign.”
Connolly wasn’t the only movie-goer who enjoyed the newly released movie — “The Ides of March” drew in $10.4 million dollars at the box office during its opening weekend.
According to the film’s official website, the film “takes place during the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, when an up-and-coming campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate’s (George Clooney) shot at the presidency.”
