Conclusion: 3/5
I think to properly understand this film and to know what is going on you have got to have some insight into the American politics. Fantastic ensemble cast who all acted so well and very intelligently written. George Clooney has done an amazing job directing and co-writing such a political film. I also felt that Ryan Gosling had a lot to do and also portrayed an awful lot. He is just so watchable. Throughout this film there have been a number of changes; for instance, Brad Pitt was originally cast as Paul Zara but was replaced by Philip Seymour Hoffman. Leonardo DiCaprio dropped out of the role of Stephen Meyers, but he stayed on as executive producer.
