In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign. Against all odds, with scant resources and under scrutiny by the despot's minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free. Movie is in sub-titles.

    I agree Mark, set in 1988 yet very much applies to current political themes. Always interesting to see how people are motivated to take action and change. Thanks for hosting.

    I liked it a lot. Very much like Argo - a fictionalized version of a real 1988 event. Works on many levels - part love story, part political thriller, part treatise on the use of modern advertising techniques applied to politics. Don't let the use of subtitles keep you from seeing it.
