Trivia

The script for this film was discovered from a query letter by the writer's manager in Spring 2014, and further developed and exposed to the market in early 2015. The unrepresented screenwriter was living in Asia at the time and was attempting to solicit industry reps over the Internet. In less than one year, the spec script was acquired, attracted an Oscar-nominated director and actress, procured financing and distribution, and was put on a progress-to-production track. See more »

Goofs

Some of the comments suggest that the writer does understand that this movie is a work of fiction. That there is no such prison is not an error, the same as there is no Miss Sloane. See more »

From the standpoint of a dispassionate observer separate from the tangled mess that is US politics.

From the standpoint of a dispassionate observer separate from the tangled mess that is US politics.

One of the best movies I have ever seen. The intensity of the movie is unrivaled. The genius who designed the plot of this movie deserves a whole host of accolades for them personally.

Twists and turns around every corner making it engaging on a level similar to that experienced when deconstructing a Shakespeare play. This movie is for anyone who desires not only a piece of quality entertainment but also something that stretches their intellect. Aside perhaps from the role of Tony Stark I have never encountered a more badass main character.
