The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that, over three-and-a-half weeks, as many as 20 sites were filmed, including Xavier University and Fountain Square in Cincinnati and Miami University in Oxford, where students were extras in a scene depicting a presidential primary debate.

Clooney acts in and directs the film about a presidential campaign. It's his first movie to have filming in the area where he grew up.

The Oscar-winning actor was born in Lexington, Kentucky, and grew up in Cincinnati area communities.

Film publicist Tracey Schaefer says about 90 per cent of the story is set in Cincinnati, northern Kentucky and Oxford.
