Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain) holds sway over the Washington political elite. A skilled lobbyist, she knows every back channel, dirty trick and more than a few of the best-kept secrets on the hill.
But when she takes on a cause that finds her swimming against the political current, Sloane's many enemies see a chance to bring her down.
It’s a savvy and intelligent thriller.
★★★★ "Satisfyingly snappy" - Tim Robey, The Telegraph
★★★★ "The real pleasure of the film comes from Chastain’s wonderfully acerbic and uninhibited performance" - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
