Spiritual Cinema presents "Miss Sloane."
A political thriller about gun control laws, the NRA, Capitol Hill and power brokering.
In the high-stakes world of political power-brokers, Elizabeth Sloane is the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in D.C. The deep-pocketed protectors of the Second Amendment want her on their side. But when she decides to lead a campaign in support of gun control, she finds that winning may come at too high a price. Her defiant stance now makes her the target of powerful new enemies who have the means and the connections to destroy her career. This nail biting tale that aims for a happy ending to gun violence, lead by fictional Congressional heroes will be as realistic as what is played out in Washington D.C. today. Join us for a candid discussion afterwards.
Jessica Chastain's gun lobby drama is a blast!

Center for Spiritual Living Peninsula selects movies that address current events which are sometimes painfully relevant. This movie was made in the wake of school shootings, NRA hardline defense, public outcry, Congressional pledge to legislate change. Interestingly, it came out in 2016...before Parkland. Its box-office failure in America drew a “gloating response from male, gun-toting, alt-right types, as if cash registers proved an argument correct." We invite you to see it and draw your own conclusion.
