‘Miss Sloane’ to release in India on February 3

New Delhi, Jan 16 (IANS) Actress Jessica Chastain starrer “Miss Sloane” will release in India on February 3.

The movie, in which she plays Elizabeth Sloane — a character of a powerful Washington lobbyist — is being released in the country by PVR Pictures, read a statement.

Chastain’s performance has already earned her a Golden Globe nomination and she is likely to land an Oscar nomination too in the Best Actress category.

In the film, her character is that of a cut-throat lobbyist on the verge of personal and professional burnout, who pushes legal and ethical boundaries to ensure the passage of a controversial law.

“Miss Sloane” takes the audience inside the soundproof conference rooms of a multi-billion dollar industry that traditionally keeps a low public profile.

Talking about her character, Chastain said: “She’s incredibly intelligent and ambitious and compulsive in her desire to win, but she’s also really vulnerable. It was a beautiful character to embark on. The script has such intelligence.

“It never talks down to the audience. It explains what’s going on simply and beautifully. You’re watching an incredible story about a woman who risks everything to win.”

“Miss Sloane” is directed by John Madden of “Shakespeare in Love” and “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” fame.
