George Clooney talks “Ides of March” in Venice – AWARDS ALLEY
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Very few of us have the vacation days, cash or resources to make it to the Venice Film Festival. Thankfully, the Internet does a bang up job of bringing the highlights of the fest to you.
George Clooney, for instance, spoke with the media following the world premiere of his political drama, “The Ides of March.” We’re hearing the film has a very good shot at making a run for a Best Picture nomination, while Clooney also could find himself in the Best Director discussion if the cards fall properly.
We’ll know more about “Ides” when we see it in Toronto next week. In the meantime, here’s Clooney answering questions from the media in Venice, explaining why he doesn’t view his film as a “political” film, and why he thinks politicians are running into cynicism as they attempt to govern.
