House of Cards – Season Two – DVD review

Be prepared for a whole new level of duplicity and back-stabbing – and some eroticism – in the world of White House politics
House of Cards - DVD cover

Beau Willimon, 2014

Sony

Newly appointed vice-president, Frank Underwood (a devilish Kevin Spacey) is on an unstoppable trajectory to the Oval Office, whether he has to sack, screw or kill for it. His impossibly serene, sleek powerhouse wife Claire (Robin Wright, superlative) is, as always, ready for any eventuality. If you found the world of White House politics in season one too dastardly to be true, be prepared for a whole new level of duplicity and back-stabbing – and some surprise eroticism – as the Underwoods slay their way to the top.
