In this political suspense film, Ryan Gosling is a spokesman for a Democratic governor (George Clooney, who also directs) seeking the nomination for president. Philip Seymour Hoffman plays the campaign’s manager; Paul Giamatti plays his counterpart. Both covet the support of a sphinx-like senator played masterfully by Jeffrey Wright. Political skulduggery unfolds. The invented plot twists tax the abilities of Gosling, but the rest of the cast and the atmosphere dazzle.
