Oh, come on now. You're being intentionally obtuse. Every review I have read recognizes the political aspects and intent of the movie. The New York Times alludes to the policy kick-starter aspect of the movie: "The filmmakers acknowledge that their project plays very differently than it would have had Hillary Clinton defeated Mr. Trump." Lifezette: "The Blatant Gun Control Agenda of ‘Miss Sloane’" The New York Times again: "In the movie, Elizabeth Sloane is a ruthless conservative lobbyist who takes on the National Rifle Association and tries to get gun-control legislation passed." We are right to discuss it, and celebrate its financial failure.
