Cast was superb, everyone had a personal best in this intrigue-filled gem. Fantastically added was, Jeffrey Right, as a pivotal character. Gossling envelops any human emotion imaginable! Thrilled to see our VAMP from True Blood in a 'human' role. Would've given, 'must go!' if it had less patent politcial slants woven throughout the film. ....pass the popcorn, pls......

I was so excited to see this movie. But they show almost all of the plot in the trailer. I would have waited for it to be on dvd. It wasn't worth the $ I spent. There is two things that you don't see in the trailer. Other than that if you watch the trailer you have seen the movie. Ryan wasn't even worth it :)

I suppose it was a realistic political drama....but there was never an "Oh My Gosh!" moment.
All-star cast that never made me care about the characters.
Was probably a subtle arc for Gosling's Stephen, but not much else to write home about regarding Clooney, PSH, Giamatti or Tomei.
Evan Rachel Wood delivered the best performance.
a disappointing C+; worth a DVD rental, not the theater price.
