Synopsis by Jennifer Lackman
This satirical comedy starring Sandra Bullock as a political consultant gives viewers an inside look at the high-stakes, win-at-all-costs world of politics. Bullock stars as "Calamity" Jane Bodine, who is hired to work on the campaign of a Bolivian presidential candidate who has fallen behind in the polls. She faces off against her rival Pat Candy (Billy Bob Thornton), who is working on the opponent's campaign and is also looking for every opportunity to antagonize Jane. The film is loosely based on the 2005 documentary of the same name by Rachel Boynton. Directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, George Washington). Produced by Oscar-winners George Clooney and Grant Heslov.
