Jessica Chastain stars in John Madden’s gripping drama about the high-stakes world of political power brokers, which is set against the backdrop of proposed and onerous gun-control legislation. The eponymous Miss Sloane (Chastain) is a forceful but icy cool Washington lobbyist who quits her pro-gun agency to join a boutique outfit hired to help gild and push through new laws imposing regulations on firearms. In spite of a relentless inquisition from heavyweight politicians, Sloane begins to deftly excoriate and manipulate all and sundry to get what she wants. But her defiance makes her – and the people she cares about – the target of some powerful new enemies. Edgy cinematography, a captivating soundtrack and above all Chastain’s tour-de-force turn guarantee peerless entertainment.
