Of the prospect of Jane Molloy leaving his firm for Sloane, Pat Connors tells her: "I could care less." This is a common mistake. If he means to convey that it does not affect him in the slightest, he should say that he couldn't care less. Saying that he could, in fact, care less, denotes a degree of caring that is not equal to zero. But this may be a deliberate affectation by the screenwriter, precisely because it is a common mistake.

Great movie, Outstanding performance by Jessica Chastain!
This is a powerful female driven film about the title character and politics.
It's one of Jessica's best performances if not the best. This character allows her to show so many things of her skill set. She's so believable, every nuance, every line she delivers is just so perfect. She should have been nominated for this role for every award show...
Miss Sloane is a great movie which has a very fast pace. You can't predict what's coming next, great performances by everyone on the cast.
Forget about the bad reviews, even if you don't like politics this movie will keep you interested.
It's upsetting that It bombed at the box office. I think It's because of the subject matter and people might had enough of the political climate in real life. But It really deserves to be seen.
I highly recommend this awesome, very underrated movie.
