About The Film
A cutthroat lobbyist on the verge of personal and professional burnout pushes
legal and ethical boundaries to ensure the passage of a controversial law in
Miss Sloane, a
riveting political thriller from Academy Award-nominated director John Madden.
Pulling back the curtain on the secretive and powerful lobbying industry,
Miss Sloane reveals how
Capitol Hill games are played - and won.
Brilliant, self-assured and utterly unscrupulous, Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica
Chastain) is one of the most powerful forces behind the scenes in Washington.
The star player at an old-school lobbying firm headed by George Dupont (Sam
Waterston), Miss Sloane will do whatever it takes for her clients - even if that
means bending the rules. But when the head of the powerful gun lobby calls on
her to help convince women to oppose a bill that will impose new regulations on
the sale of firearms, she turns him down flat and instead joins a scrappy
boutique firm representing the backers of the law. Alongside the firm's CEO
(Mark Strong) and a group of young up-and-comers, Miss Sloane schemes, maneuvers
and manipulates her way to what could be a stunning victory, but her zeal for
winning threatens both her career and the people she cares about. Compromised,
vulnerable and under investigation by the Senate, Elizabeth Sloane may finally
have met her match.
