Synopsis Jake Lacy, who continues to surprise with his diversity of character roles, is riveting as the only character who treats Miss Sloane like a human being and -- in a beautiful irony -- one of the only characters in the entire film with a moral compass. Their scenes together are extremely well-played...See this smart, showboating movie now, before its simmering sense of justice begins to feel like a thing of the past.3 stars out of 4 -- Chastain draws us in, making us see what the character keeps inside by the sheer force of her fireball performance.Jessica Chastain rules the Washington-based political thriller MISS SLOANE with such steely authority that you are hard pressed to imagine another actress playing the imperious, largely unsympathetic title character.Madden and Perera have saved up enough double and triple crosses and neck-snapping plot twists to supply a miniseries.Dressed to the nines in Ice Queen fashion, Chastain delivers a big, bold, sexy, smart, screen-grab of a performance as one Elizabeth Sloane, a powerful and feared Capitol Hill lobbyist...That Chastain imbues Liz with some humanity is credit to the actress, but it’s also worth noting that the lobbyist shines in comparison to her surroundings....[It's] often fun in a grim, burn-everything-down kind of way.4 stars out of 5 -- [A] twisty, tense and engrossing look at Washington’s underbelly, which may actually benefit from having a little bit of distance between it and last year’s election and referendum upsets.3 stars out of 5 -- Jessica Chastain does her luridly lipsticked best with the character of Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane. It’s a towering, armour-plated performance.An uncompromising and formidable lobbyist (Jessica Chastain) takes on the powerful gun lobby in the wake of several mass shootings, but her mission quickly becomes a frustrating ordeal that threatens to derail her career. Mark Strong, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alison Pill, John Lithgow, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Sam Waterston co-star in this drama directed by John Madden (SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE).
