QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: A political strategist comes out of retirement to take on her nemesis who's working on the presidential election in Bolivia.
PLOT:
The presidential election in Bolivia is looming, and American campaign workers Ben (ANTHONY MACKIE) and Nell (ANN DOWD) are concerned that the candidate their working for, Senator Pedro Castillo (JOAQUIM DE ALMEIDA) -- who was once the country's unpopular ruler fifteen years ago -- is trailing his leading opponent, Rivera (LOUIS ARCELLA), by twenty-eight points with ninety days to go.

Accordingly, they visit retired political strategist Jane Bodine (SANDRA BULLOCK) in hopes of convincing her to help Castillo. She isn't interested until she learns that her arch nemesis, Pat Candy (BILLY BOB THORNTON), is working for Rivera. Not long after that, she arrives in Bolivia to work alongside Ben, Nell, media coordinator Richard Buckley (SCOOT McNAIRY) and Eddie (REYNALDO PACHECO), a young campaign worker who lives nearby.

Upon meeting Castillo, Jane isn't impressed or sure he's electable, but after a run-in with Candy, she decides to do her thing. That includes bringing her private investigator, Sara LeBlanc (ZOE KAZAN), onboard in order to dig up potential dirt on both candidates. As the days count down toward the election, Jane and Candy go head-to-head in using every political trick in their books.

They might if they're fans of Bullock or others in the cast, or are into political satires.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
