Miss Sloane DVD Review

Miss Sloane DVD Review

From Director John Madden, Miss Sloane offers an intricate look at the lobbying machine that drives much of what happens in Washington. Jessica Chastain plays the title character, Elizabeth Sloane, one of the best and coldest lobbyists in the industry.

After scorning her employer’s directive to lobby in defense of gun rights, Sloane takes a job with a small firm pushing a bill with increased gun safety regulations. With a small but loyal team, Sloane fights dirty and doesn’t sleep in her effort to take down her one-time boss.

Quick and Dirty Movie Review

Miss Sloane performed horribly at the Box Office, likely because of Chastain’s limited opportunities to prove herself as a lead character. However, she delivers as the abrasive Sloane in a role that is far from her meek housewife role in The Help. A solid supporting cast includes Mark Strong, John Lithgow and Sam Waterston.

It takes a little while to pick up on the film’s plot. However, this result is partly due to Sloane’s clever use of deception to throw off her opponent. Viewers also have to look beyond the protagonist’s unlikable personality. She is crude and disrespectful, but also brilliant and witty.

Despite some fictional exaggeration, Miss Sloane offers a glimpse into strategies used by lobbyists to back politicians into a corner. The film portrays lobbyists as a unique persona, with professionals willing to stretch legal and ethical boundaries in an effort to influence votes for clients.

Miss Sloane is a well-executed, smart film with several critical twists and turns, including a dramatic conclusion.

Who Should Watch

This drama film has broad appeal, particularly if you like movies with strong, smart female leads. Chastain proves that she can tackle a complex lead character, and the payoff should come with better financial results for future films.
