Our Brand is Crisis lands in Irish cinemas this week. It's the story of an American campaign strategist who is coaxed out of retirement to help out the presidential race in Bolivia. And it's all true.
Sandra Bullock plays Jane Bodine, who comes up against familar opposition when Pat Candy (Billy Bob Thornton) starts helping out the other side in the race. The film is directed by David Gordon Green and comes partly from a documentary about the real use of American campaign tactics in the 2002 Bolivian presidential elections.
Also in the mix is Anthony Mackie (Avengers, The Night Before) and here he talks about his take on politics, his co-stars and working outside the US.
The film also stars Joaquim de Almeida, Ann Dowd, Scoot McNairy, Zoe Kazan and Reynaldo Pacheco. Our Brand is Crisis is in Irish cinemas on the 22nd of January 2016.
