In the world of political power-brokers,
Sloane takes on the most powerful opponent of her career and will do whatever is required to win.
In the high-stakes world of political power-brokers,
Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain) is the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in
D.C. Known equally for her cunning and her track record of success, she has always done whatever is required to win.
But when she takes on the most powerful opponent of her career, she finds that winning may come at too high a price.
Elizabeth Sloane is a character so archetypal, so prescriptive,
that you imagine she wasn't born in normal human fashion but rather created in a lab from leftover vials of testosterone and male tears.

Following a pair of sojourns to the adorable Marigold Hotel,
John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) takes a giant step forward with this perfectly timed tale of how to draw and quarter a lobbyist.

San Diego Reader
Miss Sloane is a powerfully conceived thriller with something dead at its centre:
there is no reason a female protagonist must be good or well-behaved, but she must at least be interesting.

Globe and Mail
We don't need to like her, but Chastain makes us understand and even sympathize with her,
ruthless and cunning though she may be. It's remarkable work.

As a dramatic thriller, it does what it needs to do to keep the audience involved and interested,
even if some of its most theatrical tricks and twists are more the products of a writer's invention than actual Washington D.C. activities.

The movie shares with other mainstream political dramas an easy notion of Washington as a hopeless cesspool of sellouts,
paybacks, and heinous personal betrayals.

A fascinating film for its paradoxical tension, generated by holding a liberal ethical discourse on the dubious operation
of a conflictive and reprehensible character. [Full review in Spanish]

El Pais (Spain)
Miss Sloane is very engaging - the back and forth between the characters is fast paced and intelligent
(for the most part), and the twists and turns are both satisfying and occasionally gasp-worthy.

Film Ireland Magazine
It's all fast dialogue, archetypes and some genre cliches but in this world principles can show
in strange places, and although Sloane shows cracks, there is, refreshingly, no big ole explainer backstory.

Sunday Independent (Ireland)
The sharp script is undermined by its convoluted efforts to be clever... But as
a glimpse into the power and workings of DC lobbyists, Miss Sloane has a lead character and message that bite.

A very instructive thriller about an unknown sector: home espionage,
buying votes from congressmen and campaigns that discredit adversaries. [Full review in Spanish]
