#5 : The Ides of March

Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Philip Seymour-Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Jeffry Wright and Evan Rachel Wood

No strapline given, but reviews galore:

**** Total film
**** The Times
**** The Evening Standard
***** MSN Movies
"Smart, sexy and completely gripping...  It'll bring the house down."  Esquire
"Oscars all round" - Marie Claire

This bus advert bothers me.  It is everywhere in Leeds.  If it really is as good as it makes out, which with that cast and those star ratings it could be, then I'm confused by why they are advertising on the buses.  Is it a case of another Clooney vehicle that is "worthy".

IMDB users are rating it as 7.5, but the critics have a lower metascore of 67/100 but the scores hidden there rate from 50 in the LA Time, New York Times the Wall Street Journal and Variety, but with a 91 from Entertainment Weekly.
