Miss Sloane stars Jessica Chastain (Interstellar) in the titular lead role as a ruthless and highly successful political strategist, Elizabeth Sloane, who exposes the cutthroat world of Washington D.C lobbyists on both sides of the gun control debate.
New legislation requiring more stringent background checks for gun ownership is gaining traction in Congress, and Sloane is approached to spearhead the campaign, pitting her against the formidable power of her political opponents. Deploying her notorious skills – and driven by a desire to win at all costs – she jeopardises those closest to her, and puts her own career at risk.
This looks pretty interesting, not quite sure it’s going to be the “riveting political thriller” that the billing states, however.
Directed by John Madden (Shakespeare in Love, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), from a screenplay by Jonathan Perera, the film also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alison Pill, Mark Strong, John Lithgow, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jake Lacy and Sam Waterston.
Miss Sloane is out in the US on December 9th, but as of yet, there’s no UK date.
