Adapted from Rachel Boynton’s 2005 documentary of the same name and starring Sandra Bullock, Our Brand is Crisis follows a group of American political strategists battling it out to win the 2002 Bolivian presidential election. Bullock stars as “Calamity” Jane Bodine, persuaded out of enforced retirement by the prospect of beating her former nemesis, the sleazy Pat Candy (Billy Bob Thornton). With Candy working for the opposition, it becomes an intense and outrageous battle between political consultants. Nothing is sacred and winning is all that matters in this fast-paced smart tale.
