At the Movies: 'Miss Sloane' trying hard to be a political thriller

By LINDSEY BAHR
AP Film Writer

There's never a hair out of place in “Miss Sloane ,” a painstakingly slick political thriller from director John Madden about a brilliant lone wolf lobbyist consumed with the win. It's a glimpse into the hollow and cynical world of inside the beltway dealings from first-time screenwriter Jonathan Perera that's never quite snappy, insightful or salacious enough to be as fun or damning as it should be.
