Critic Reviews of "Miss Sloane"
The AtlanticDecember 22, 2016
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.
San Diego ReaderDecember 09, 2016
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.
Globe and MailDecember 09, 2016
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.
Detroit NewsDecember 09, 2016
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.
ReelViewsDecember 08, 2016
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.
Chicago ReaderDecember 08, 2016
The movie shares with other mainstream political dramas an easy notion of Washington as a hopeless cesspool of sellouts, paybacks, and heinous personal betrayals.
London Evening StandardMay 12, 2017
Elizabeth Sloane's a real piece of work - and so is this film.
Daily Mail (UK)May 12, 2017
Chastain keeps the story rooted in some kind of reality with a bravura performance that diverts the eye from mounting improbabilities and shows us tantalising glimpses of Sloane's well-hidden vulnerabilities.
Little White LiesMay 12, 2017
The film's unwillingness to engage in any meaningful sense with the issues it purports to raise feels like an opportunity squandered.
The Sun (UK)May 11, 2017
A satisfying courtroom thriller delivered in way you both expect and appreciate.
Radio TimesMay 11, 2017
Miss Sloane pivots entertainingly and it's fun watching a seasoned double-dealer rub up against more high-minded colleagues.
Daily Express (UK)May 11, 2017
It is a little glib and contrived but not enough to spoil the fun.
