Ryan Gosling and George Clooney in a movie about a Governor's election run for President. George is the Governor; Ryan is a key lead in the Campaign Management Team, not quite the Campaign Manager but is his right-hand man. Things are going well until some "political moves" are made that create mistakes, lead to pitfalls, and even death! Liked the movie, save for the ending... could have done better with it.
Hold off on watching it as a first date. Rule of thumb: "Don't watch movies about politics for a first date!"
