Farragut North

The Ides of March received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay, George Clooney, Grant Heslov, and Beau Willimon, the original playwright. Ides is based on the play Farragut North by Beau Willimon. Farragut North is loosely based on Howard Dean‘s 2004 primary campaign. The original production starred Chris Noth and Chris Pine, among others.

There’s a Redbox outside the Nashua Book Cellar. Rent The Ides of March before award night! And pick up a copy of the play here to compare.

The Ides of March, a George Clooney-directed picture, also stars Ryan Gosling, who was nominated for a Best Actor Golden Globe
