Our Brand is Crisis

Review: This is a political drama about an American campaign strategist. She is taken out of retirement to work on the Bolivian presidential election for an unpopular candidate.
Director: David Gordon Green
Actors: Sandra Bullock, Billy Bob Thornton and Anthony Mackie
Year: 2015
Genre: Comedy and Drama
Conclusion: 3/5
Great to see something different and so original. Sandra Bullock is great in this and she has the hardest job of everybody. With all the films that she has been in it is her that makes you interested with what you are watching. Apparently the central character was originally going to be male until she came on board. It does lose the plot a bit in the final act and doesn’t know quite what to do. I liked the characters and I never got fed up with the film. Although there are things wrong with this and it isn’t perfect it is not a bad film. The script is very well written. An easy film to watch. George Clooney was cast but dropped out and Billy Bob Thornton replaced him. This film helps you to understand how political advisors can sell a candidate and get him elected.
