Free Movie Passes: OUR BRAND IS CRISIS.

The star plays an election consultant in a heated feud with a rival in her latest movie Our Brand Is Crisis, a part intended for a man until she approached producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov about making the character a woman. “It would be great, I think some roles belong to the male sex and some belong to the female sex, I just think writing wonderful stories that embrace and support women is needed. 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). George Clooney walked the red carpet at the premiere with his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, while Billy Bob Thornton, who plays Sandra’s sparring partner in the film, sported a sleeveless t-shirt and cowboy boots. In self-imposed retirement following a scandal that 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.

Mendel’s upcoming Spring 2016 assortment &, identical to its wearer, was the right mixture of glamour & unpretentiousness.The dress’ leather-based trimmed bodice showed-off a touch of skin ’cause of a key hole neckline & cut outs on both of Sandra’s sides. Watching Sandra Bullock, as ruthless campaign manager Jane, flog her uncharismatic candidate for Bolivia’s next president, I snickered at her knowing quips. Billy Bob, who was recently seen in the hit television series Fargo, said he could see comparisons between the political stage and the Hollywood bubble. “In both businesses and they are businesses, you have to watch what you say, you have to deal with the media a lot and you are trying to sell something. “In Hollywood the stakes aren’t as high, we can pretend we are important all day but we are really not, in politics we are talking about running the world, it’s life and death. Long-legged surprise: The 51-year-old showed-off some critical leg as the gown’s layers have been blown to at least one side as she walked to the carpet Hot off fashion presses: The show star wore a black & white printed silk frock which was plucked from J. Asked by an off-screen TV interviewer (the film’s awkward framing device) to name her inspiration, Jane jokes, “When I started in this business, my heroes were politicians and leaders.

Here’s how they pulled it off: Because New Orleans is hardly a dead-ringer for Bolivia, the production spent most of its time in town focusing on interior shots. Filming also took place in Bolivia, but due to what the filmmakers describe as “the practical challenges” of shooting in one of South America’s poorest countries, they shot for only a week there, for key scene-setting shots. Wright, was the hotel room of Bullock’s character, which required no small amount of movie magic. “The room opens up to a balcony and there’s a lot of back and forth between this balcony and the inside of the room,” Wright says in the film’s production notes. “The exterior was shot in Puerto Rico while the set was in New Orleans, so we spent a lot of time trying to coordinate the balcony with a green screen to match the location footage.” On the handful of occasions in which crews strayed from the controlled confines of the film’s New Orleans sound stages, they found that a little Bolivian-style graffiti went a long way. “We searched New Orleans for those tiny wedges of space that, with a little adjustment, could create the illusion of Bolivia,” Wright said. “If something looked particularly American, we would cover it with posters or graffiti. It not only helped set the scene but served to camouflage where we actually were.” For a crowd scene re-creating a massive Bolivian demonstration, producers put out multiple calls for New Orleans extras. They didn’t really look the part. “New Orleans isn’t known for its large Bolivian population,” producer Grant Heslov said, “so we cast a wide net.

Cozying up to her at a debate, he whispers, “When I get home, I’m going to spend hours pleasuring myself thinking of you.” Jane wouldn’t ever cry sexual harassment; she sees herself as a sexless warrior. Green also has a weakness for seeing the locals as a gullible herd prone to throwing rocks, doting over llamas, and undermining their own political credibility.

And the story itself is “suggested by” an award-winning 2005 documentary of the same name about the work of New Orleans resident James Carville and consulting firm GCS in advising the campaign of former Bolivian President Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada. As Scoot McNairy, a co-strategist along with Anthony Mackie and Ann Dowd, notes of the country’s many rural voters, winning them over will be like if an American candidate had to sway 200 million Apaches. A few rise above the rabble: Young intern Eddie (Reynaldo Pacheco) and his eye-rolling, heavy-drinking apolitical friends; a countryside academic who demands that Castillo decry the IMF; a man at a focus group who groans at their latest campaign commercial of a sobbing Bolivian child.

And there’s de Almeida’s Castillo — a performance worthy of a supporting-actor campaign — whose prim pride is jackhammered away as Jane rebrands him as a pit bull. Green also spins the camera around to show how the Bolivians see these Yankees: as bossy, patronizing giants who can’t even be bothered to learn Spanish. But this brisk, brittle comedy burns with ideas it needs us to witness: that Americans are still upending countries just as the anti-communist CIA did last century, and that, even worse, we don’t even do it for a political point.
