Through Jane’s ups and downs, Our Brand is Crisis introduces the questions of how far (literally, in that case) you can go for money, and how liking your job is directly linked to your own happiness and inner peace. It shows the importance of having a positive impact, and doing something you find meaningful with your life and career -- I’d admit that this particularly spoke to me as I find myself at that time of my life… Decisions, decisions. Ultimately, the story behind the story of Our Brand is Crisis is the path Jane takes towards that ultimate goal; and that it’s never too late to make a radical change.
Even though this feels like the movie is very intellectual, it is actually pretty easy to watch. It offers impressive monologues from Bullock, good acting, some pretty fun lines, and is overall quite emotional. I really enjoyed it!
