Tomorrow marks the start of the Venice Film Festival, which will kick off with the world premiere of George Clooney's "Ides Of March." It will be the first of the unseen Oscar contenders to get out of the gate, and within twenty-four hours its narrative in the award season will be largely determined.

If you can't make it, the Lido Yahoo has offered up the first taste from the film outside of the trailer, with a scene between Ryan Gosling -- who plays Stephen Myers, a twenty-something presidential campaign spinmeister/wunderkind -- and Evan Rachel Wood, an intern for Myers’ campaign who also has eyes for him. The scene is a pretty charming one, with Gosling's suave offensive hardly saving face for his character, who has completely forgotten who Wood is. The underrated Wood brings some zest of her own to a part that looks a lot more well rounded than it might seem on paper. But will the film overall be Oscar caliber stuff? We'll soon know.

After playing Venice, 'Ides' will go to Toronto before opening on October 7th. Clip below.
