(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 »
This movie is awesome. One of the best pictures I've ever seen. Very strong emotionally. The performances are top notch; all of them. But In my opinion, this is Jessica Chastain's all time best role. She deserved at least an "actress in a leading role" nomination. She achieves a better performance level than Natalie Portman - "jackie", Isabelle Huppert - Elle" or even the winner - Emma Stone in "La La Land". Again, my opinion, of course. The interest prediction on this movie describes an ideal curve, growing strongly from the start till the end. And at the end it explodes in a rainbow of emotions you could never predict. It's absolutely astonishing. Loved it.
