Our Brand is Crisis (2015)
Saturday 14th May 2016
Sometimes winning means changing the rules when Our Brand is Crisis arrives onto DVD on 30th May 2016, courtesy of Warner Home Video. Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) and Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade) star in Our Brand is Crisis, from director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, George Washington) and producers Grant Heslov and George Clooney, the Oscar®-winning producers of Argo.
The drama also stars Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Joaquim de Almeida (Fast Five), Ann Dowd (Side Effects, HBO's The Leftovers), Scoot McNairy (Gone Girl, Argo), Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks) and Reynaldo Pacheco (Beginners).
Green directs Our Brand is Crisis from a screenplay by Oscar nominee Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), suggested by the documentary by Rachel Boynton, which outlined the American political campaign marketing tactics employed in the real-life 2002 Bolivian presidential election. Sandra Bullock, Stuart Besser and Participant Media's Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King serve as executive producers.
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 (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 (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.
