Miss Sloane

Miss Sloaneis a 2016 political thriller film directed by John Madden and written by Jonathan Perera. The film stars Jessica Chastain , Mark Strong , Gugu Mbatha-Raw , Michael Stuhlbarg , Alison Pill , Jake Lacy , John Lithgow and Sam Waterston .

The film had its world premiere on November 11, 2016 at the AFI Fest and was released in the United States on November 25, 2016 by EuropaCorp on a limited release before opening wide on December 9, 2016, and was released in France on March 8, 2017. It received generally positive reviews and Chastain's performance was acclaimed by critics. Chastain also received a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama .

Elizabeth Sloane ( Jessica Chastain ) is a cutthroat lobbyist who has been called to appear at a congressional hearing led by Senator Ronald Sperling ( John Lithgow ) to answer questions about possible violations of Senate ethics rules during her tenure at Washington D.C. lobbying firm Cole Kravitz & Waterman.

Three months and one week earlier, Sloane's firm is approached by gun manufacturing representative Bob Sanford ( Chuck Shamata ) to lead the opposition to the proposed Heaton-Harris bill that would expand background checks on gun purchases, specifically by targeting their message towards women. Sloane ridicules Sanford's idea and is later approached by Rodolfo Schmidt ( Mark Strong ), the head of rival lobbying firm Peterson Wyatt, to instead lead the effort in support of the bill. Sloane agrees and takes most of her staff along with her, with the exception of her assistant Jane Molloy ( Alison Pill ) who refuses to leave.

At Peterson Wyatt, Sloane selects Esme Manucharian ( Gugu Mbatha-Raw ) to conduct the majority of the firm's media appearances, and they begin to make significant progress in garnering votes for the bill. Sloane confronts Esme with the knowledge that Esme was a victim of a school shooting, and promises not to disclose the information, but Sloane breaks her promise and reveals Esme's secret during a live television debate. Later, Esme is held up at gunpoint while leaving her office, but her attacker is shot dead by another civilian who is legally carrying a gun. The gun lobby capitalizes on this event, which causes support for the Heaton-Harris bill to wane. This is compounded by the news of the senate inquiry into Sloane's potentially illegal lobbying practices.

The narrative returns to the congressional hearing. Senator Sperling produces a form arranging overseas travel for a member of Congress which was filed by a non-profit organization but written in Sloane's handwriting, indicating she illegally played a role in arranging the travel.

In her final statement at the hearing, Sloane admits she anticipated an assault on her might occur by the opposition if Peterson Wyatt made too much progress with the Heaton-Harris bill. It is revealed that Jane Molloy had secretly been working for Sloane the entire time, and Sloane had evidence of Senator Sperling accepting bribes from Cole Kravitz & Waterman boss George Dupont ( Sam Waterston ).

Ten months later, Sloane is visited by her lawyer in prison, and it is revealed the Heaton-Harris bill had passed.
