Before the movie, I was totally attracted by the beauty of Miss Sloane in the poster, that’s a professional woman with big red lips. Yeah , a beauty.
Then during the movie, the fast pace of words with the cautious and brilliant logic from her and the interlocking plot of the movie had successfully shaped the image of a cold-blooded, determined political lobbyist. Jessica Chastain, a pretty actress, we Chinese fans call her “model worker”, that because she has five or six wonderful films almost every year. She is a late bloomer and maybe those are the reason that she acted as the heroine. They all, I mean, the actress and the film role, devoted their life to their profession.
Miss Sloane regularly works over 16 hours a day, stays awake by taking neurochemicals. As an influential political lobbyist, her greatest pleasure is to win, only win. That’s also the highlights of this film, no trauma background. The aim of the leading actor’s a series of unusual behaviors is not to revolt, not to support the feminist and not to support for gun control. More terrifyingly, she saws everyone as tools and chips for her win. A woman of extreme calm and cold-blood. For the support of public opinion, she exposes her companion ’s experience about shooting incident regardless of her fear and helplessness. For win, she spies on top officials no matter what law says. For win, she even gives up career and goes to jail. For her professional excellence, she would rather give up all things that a normal woman can own, love, social and career.
This time, as a woman, she doesn’t need maternal，which means sympathy , sadness and other female weakness of the image characteristics. Each plot in the movie is planned before she plans to support gun control. She is like a high-speed machine which is be introduced step by step during those plots.
In one word, the woman portrayed in the film can stand out in the political arena like men without sexual characteristics.
