George Clooney's latest work, Ides Of March, is going to be opening the Venice Film Festival on August 31st.
The drama takes place during the Ohio primary for the Democratic nomination. It's extremely topical, given the recent resignation of Congressman Anthony Weiner for sending photos of his package to online "sexting" partners. The Ides of March involves similar scandalous activities.
Sounds good to us, and it couldn't have come at a better time with all this Weiner stuff going on, that's for sure!
Good luck, George! Feel free to send us tickets, we'll even grab some dinner before if you want! Ha!
