(45:55) At Peterson Wyatt, where all lobbyists are now gathered, Elizabeth asks for "arguments and rebuttals". Alex then starts writing on a board the first four letters of "National Register". The camera switches to Elizabeth speaking, then, when camera returns to Alex, the size and position of the writing are clearly different : bigger and more to the left. See more »
Lobbying is about foresight. About anticipating your opponent's moves and devising counter measures. The winner plots one step ahead of the opposition. And plays her trump card just after they play theirs. It's about making sure you surprise them. And they don't surprise you.

Worth an easy 8/10 - Pro gun folk are manipulating it
So many users are getting their knickers in a twist. They are giving this excellent movie with great twists a low rating because the story is about gun law, and sides with, yes you guessed it, anti gun lobbyists. All the 1/10s own a gun lol.
It's actually not about gun law at all. Gun law has only been used as the subject of the day, to put the point across about dirty politicians and lobbyists.
This movie is terrific. It's complicated at the start, but soon starts to make sense.
The main character is terrific. Cold, hard and calculating. Great job!
I can't say anymore because I never include spoilers. Just trust me.
Whether you're for or against guns, that's not the point. This is a political thriller folks. Sit back, relax and enjoy it!
BTW....it's not a true story. Don't take it so seriously.
