Our Brand is Crisis


ourbrandiscrisisLegendary political consultant Jane Bodine (Sandra Bullock) reluctantly agrees to assist the failing campaign of an unlikable presidential contender in Bolivia. A comedy-drama based on the 2005 documentary of the same title that followed James Carvilleā€™s involvement in Bolivian politics. A fictionalized version of him is amusingly played by Billy Bob Thornton here, but focus lies on Bullockā€™s character, a depressed operative who buries herself in a campaign for a rotten candidate. Funny at times and surprisingly cynical, perhaps in a way that emphasizes peopleā€™s false ideas of how all politics worksā€¦ but Bullock is compelling.

2015-U.S. 107 min. Color. Directed byĀ David Gordon Green. Screenplay: Peter Straughan. Cast: Sandra Bullock (ā€Calamityā€ Jane Bodine), Billy Bob Thornton (Pat Candy), Anthony Mackie (Ben), Joaquim de Almeida, Ann Dowd, Scoot McNairy.

Trivia: Co-produced by George Clooney; executive-produced by Bullock.
