(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 »

A thriller with a surprise!
27 January 2017 | by louehpSee all my reviews

I picked this movie without prejudice, as I hadn't heard a word about it. And I loved it!!!

The tempo is sustained, the performances outstanding. An interesting story with a twist, well written, and the perfect cast.

One element that also enhances the movie: its diversity. Multi-faceted characters which gives spice to the story's meat.

The only downside: the way love is given a bad name. How do you want the youth to connect if you keep telling them that love ain't the sh*t?? It is a recurrent theme in 21st century cinema that i condemn, because it perpetuates mechanic sex--humans deprived from feelings. I am for a little more optimism in that domain and the human species.

My 2cents; LM ARNAL
