THE IDES OF MARCH is a political drama about a Presidential campaign and the political machinations of the candidate's campaign staff.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms such as 'Jesus' and 'tits'.

The film also contains a sub-plot focusing on a character who seeks, and secures, an abortion. The film does not take any position on this issue but presents the young woman in question as someone whose youthful inexperience has allowed her to be taken advantage of by a person of power and influence.
