The Ides of March (2011) - Ambition seduces. Power corrupts.
"I feel perhaps a little cynical since we made the film. That’s probably why we made it. I think we go back and forth. I think it’s fluid. I know that there are dedicated and honest and honorable people working in government, but I think that the flaws inherent in the system make that difficult to shine through. Right now the country is more polarized that I can ever remember it being, and just trying to get normal stuff done – like just trying to get some judges through… and this is for both sides. This isn’t a partisan thing.” (Grant Heslov)
