Elevator Pitch An influencial DC lobbyist joins a company promoting a bill to restrict the purchase of automatic weapons, while her previous employer is hired to lobby against it by those citing the 2nd Amendment in their support. As she begins to achieve some success her opponents decide that the only way to win is to discredit her.
Content Mostly discussions in a variety of offices, in front of TV cameras and watching rolling news. One incident involving firearms. A bit of non-revelatory sex, and some possible drug taking.
A View If I could be honest this was just a bit slow, but if you sympathise with the cause the climax may be worth waiting for. However, it has not made money much to the satisfaction of the US gun lobby. But like it or not it is an interesting view of the whole lobbying process in Washington.
