With Miss Sloane now playing in limited release and opening nationwide on December 9th, I recently sat down with Alison Pill to talk about director John Madden’s new film. During the interview she talked about her reaction to the material, getting to work with the incredible cast, how the film captures what it must be like in the room with real lobbyists, the Goon sequel (Goon: Last of the Enforcers) and more.
If you’re not familiar with the film, Jessica Chastain is fantastic as a ruthless lobbyist that’s willing to do whatever it takes to win. As the film unfolds, we follow as she attempts to take on the gun lobby and her former firm. While we all know the term “lobbyist,” Miss Sloane pulls the curtain back on how Capitol Hill games are played and I thought it was really well done. The film also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, Jake Lacey, Michael Stuhlbarg, Sam Waterston and John Lithgow.
Check out what they had to say in the interview above, and below is exactly what we talked about along with some images from the film. You can also watch the Miss Sloane trailer by clicking here.
