at

ourbrandiscrisissmall

What you may need to know:

1. The Thick of It-style satire about an American spin doctor’s role in the 2002 Bolivian presidential campaign.

2. A cautionary tale of US political interference in the developing world? Or ‘Murica… Hell yeah!?

3. It’s produced by Grant Heslov and George Clooney (who else?), so probably the former.

4. No llamas were harmed in the making of this trailer.

5. It’s hard to believe that Joaquim de Almeida has never been a Bond villain.

6. Broadsheet prognosis: Argo on.

Release Date: October 30 (USA).

      The film is based on the documentary below, which doesn’t feature a Sandra Bullock American character coming to save the day.

      Point of Irish interest:
      The corrupt bad guy that is trying to get elected in the film is based on a guy called Goni.
      In the documentary, the American team that are trying to get Goni elected occasionally make reference to Ireland’s 2002 election, bragging about how they got Bertie elected. (For example go to 36:25 of the documentary.)

    Her increasingly plastic face just distracts me.

    She looks a bit like Bruce Willis wearing a wig in the poster.

    Apparently George Clooney was meant to star but gave it to Bullock when he decided to get (a beard) married instead.
