The open discussion brought students of all political beliefs together in addition to promoting the new film “Miss Sloane” available in theaters everywhere this Friday, December 9. The film stars Jessica Chastain, Mark Strong, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alison Pill, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jake Lacy and Sam Waterston. Tomorrow, State Representative Vanessa Brown is scheduled to appear from Harrisburg at an advanced screening of the film in Philadelphia along with other state representatives throughout the state.

In the high-stakes world of political power-brokers, Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain) is the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in D.C. Known equally for her cunning and her track record of success, she has always done whatever is required to win. But when she takes on the most powerful opponent of her career, “The Gun Lobby”, she finds that winning may come at too high a price.
