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.

The film stars Sandra Bullock, Scoot McNairy, Billy Bob Thornton, Anthony Mackie, and Ann Dowd.

“Our Brand Is Crisis” hits theaters on October 30.
