Opening nationwide Friday, Our Brand Is Crisis centers on Jane Bodine, a political strategist who comes out of semi-retirement to spearhead a campaign in Bolivia. Unfortunately Pat Candy (Billy Bob Thornton), a fellow colleague who always seems to have the upper hand, has also thrown his hat into the ring by working for another candidate. Directed by David Gordon Green (Joe) and produced by George Clooney, the film was a synchronistic experience for Bullock.
“I’m not politically vocal,” said Bullock. “I just want what’s best for our country. I would like my rights represented and those of my son – those very selfish views. I think everyone else has them. But when this film came along, it came along at a time when I was having that internal discussion with myself about who in our country would step out of their comfort zone to help others for the greater good? “
