Miss Sloane is One of the Best Films of the Year

Political dramas are usually hit or miss, and thankfully, Miss Sloane is the former. Jessica Chastain gives an excellent performance as the steely titular character. Her power performance makes the film feel like a one woman show without ever getting cheesy. With a well-written story and crazy characters, Miss Sloane is one of the best films of the year.

Miss Sloane is one of the best lobbyists in Washington D.C. She’s willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done and get a win for whichever side she is working for. When a new bill about gun control is being sent through the senate, Sloane has to decide whether it’s a personal or a professional decision to fight for her clients. As things get more and more personal, Sloane engages in the dirtiest forms of blackmail to save her own skin.

The screenplay is one of the best written scripts of the year. It’s a very engaging story that keeps you wondering which side will prove triumphant. It’s also not a very predictable script, which is always great. Although you may figure out general things that will occur, it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what’s going to happen. The development of Sloane as a character is an interesting ride, as it’s easy to go from liking her to hating her to rooting for her.

Sloane is a complicated character. She’s as cold as ice, incredibly stubborn, and way too focused on her work. However, she’s incredibly smart and fantastic at her job. Even though she continually skates the line of ethics, Sloane is a great lead character that is captivating to watch. Chastain was the perfect actress for the role, and she never disappoints.

The supporting cast was also strong. Mark Strong, John Lithgow, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Alison Pill did well in their roles and helped supplement Chastain’s performance. Their characters helped give Sloane more depth and development. Sloane’s relationships with Mbatha-Raw and Pill’s characters were especially fun to watch.

The politics of Miss Sloane crossed many lines, but that’s what I personally like in a good political drama. The story is interesting and entertaining, and Chastain’s performance is one of the better ones I have seen this year. I really enjoyed Miss Sloane as a whole, and I strongly recommend it.
