If there's such a thing as an academy award for art imitating life, The Ides of March wins hands down - catch it before it leaves town.
As Washingtonians, this political thriller directed and written by Clooney, Grant Heslov and Beau Willimon as an adaptation of Willimon's 2008 play Farragut North, hits so close to home you may want to review your K Street friendships.
As for the political friendships thing, keep in mind that Julius Caesar's bloody assassination was on March 15, 44 B.C. and forever marked March 15 as the Ides of March i.e. a day of infamy.
