I rated Miss Sloane 8/10 on #IMDB

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4540710

A political thriller with engaging characters and some suitably devious activities. Well worth seeing.

With most characters in this movie appearing morally flexible and involved in one of the greatest shows on earth there’s a lot to explore. Jessica chastain’s Miss Sloane is confident and generally composed. Only cracking convincingly in a few places.

The remaining cast is well put together. Mark Strong as a principled lobbyist (?) does very well. Especially in his difficult role of bringing Miss Sloane in and then dealing with some of the problems that arise.

The senators are played suitably sharply. John Lithgow does a great job as the morally compromised inquisitor. Spoiler? Come on, it’s a movie about politics that features people in power. Such characters can’t be anything but morally equivocal at best.

It zips along with its intrigue and entertains brilliantly. Go see it.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
