Awards Season Onslaught continues! Today, I’ve got passes for the Baltimore area screening of Our Brand is Crisis. It’s a film based on the award-winning 2005 documentary of the same name. You’ve seen the trailer, right? Very cool blend of drama, comedy and docu-pic. Aaaaand…synopsis!
A Bolivian presidential candidate failing badly in the polls enlists the firepower of an elite American management team, led by the deeply damaged but still brilliant strategist “Calamity” Jane Bodine (Sandra Bullock). In self-imposed retirement following a scandal that earned her nickname and rocked her to her core, Jane is coaxed back into the game for the chance to beat her professional nemesis, the loathsome Pat Candy (Billy Bob Thornton), now coaching the opposition. But as Candy zeroes in on every vulnerability—both on and off the campaign trail—Jane is plunged into a personal crisis as intense as the one her team exploits nationally to boost their numbers. Dramatic, rapid-fire and laced with satire, “Our Brand is Crisis” reveals the cynical machinations and private battles of world-class political consultants for whom nothing is sacred and winning is all that matters.
As interesting as the premise is — and it is fascinating stuff — I’ve gotta say I’m in it to see the interplay between heavy-hitters Bullock and Thornton. Should be very cool indeed.
