May the best campaign win.

Sandra Bullock leads this political comedy from David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) as a hot-shot campaign strategist who takes her renowned skills to South America. Co-stars Billy Bob Thornton (The Judge), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks). From the Oscar-nominated writer of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, loosely based on the 2005 documentary of the same name.
