‘Miss Sloane’

timthumb-1.phpIt may not be innovative or making an overtly political statement, but Miss Sloane is a superior, highly polished conspiracy theory drama.

Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, The Martian) dominates all around her as the high-flying Washington D.C. lobbyist taking on the gun lobby and her ex-firm. And she intends to win – whatever the cost. A crowd-pleasing, flag-waving ending is a little trite but characters and narrative alike move the storyline along at a cracking pace – exactly what you would expect from director John Madden (Shakespeare In Love, The Debt).
