    In MISS SLOANE, ruthless and highly successful political strategist Elizabeth Sloane (Oscar® nominee Jessica Chastain), exposes the cutthroat world of DC lobbyists on both sides of the gun control debate. New legislation requiring more stringent background checks for gun ownership is gaining traction in Congress, and Sloane is approached to spearhead the campaign, pitting her against the formidable power of her political opponents. Deploying her notorious skills — and driven by a desire to win at all costs — she jeopardizes those closest to her, and puts her own career at risk. Directed by Oscar®-nominated filmmaker John Madden, and starring a powerhouse ensemble cast of Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, Alison Pill, John Lithgow, Michael Stuhlbarg and Sam Waterston, MISS SLOANE is a riveting political thriller that delves into the complexities of one of the most pressing and fiercely fought issues in contemporary America.

  • British-born John Madden has worked in film, television, theater and radio. His films include Best Picture Oscar® winner SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE (1998), PROOF (2005), THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (2011) and THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (2015). MISS SLOANE is his 11th feature.
