Elizabeth Sloane (Chastain) is the most sought after and formidable political lobbyist in Washington. Known for her track record of success and unmatched cunning, she has always done whatever she is needed to win. But, when she takes on the most powerful opponent of her career, she finds that winning may come at too high a price.
“Sloane is a nasty piece of work. Yet Chastain draws us in, making us see what the character keeps inside by the sheer force of her fireball performance.” Rolling Stone
