Trivia

Miss Sloane and Esme Manachurian dine early in the movie at Goldstone Noodle restaurant. There is no such restaurant in DC, where the two are supposedly eating. That restaurant is actually in Toronto. See more »

Goofs

(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 »

Just look a great book - impossible to put down!
25 January 2017 | by trevorhunt-18641See all my reviews

Fantastic movie - exceptional acting, intricate plot, suspenseful scenes throughout and an unbelievable twist at the end, which was impossible to predict.

Whilst some gun-tooting viewers may not appreciate the biased view towards the need for greater gun control measures (a point so intelligently made by drawing an analogy with car ownership), there can be no doubting the quality of this piece of work from a cinematographic perspective.

The recurrent theme not of gun ownership issues but rather of aberrant behaviour by self-serving politicians, if indeed not evident corruption and nepotism, is a theme that will strike a strong cord in many Western countries today, and lead us to question what democracy actually means in a world where money plays the role of god.
