Jessica Chastain plays the titular Miss Sloan, a power-broker lobbyist that eats other lobbyists for breakfast. She’s feared for her prodigious skills and lack of a moral compass even within her own company. Which is why they’re honestly surprised when she refuses to cooperate with a plan to help the NRA (or the film’s equivalent of it) gain traction with female voters and instead leaves the company to go work for Mark Strong and his little group fighting the gun lobby to help push a bill through for tighter controls on sales.
Much to our surprise, this movie wasn’t really about what it looked like it was. We all came out kinda thrilled with it. I don’t want to say too much here, but you really should listen to Chris, Kyle, Mike and Frank on the review.
