Whether he's composing the score for HBO's The Leftovers or creating a new concept album, Max Richter's music is spellbinding. His attraction to projects that have political dimensions is well known, so it's no surprise that he was quick to get on board with John Madden and compose the score for the scorching thriller, Miss Sloane. The film stars Jessica Chastain as a Washington lobbyist who takes on a formidable opponent, the gun lobby. Miss Sloane is tense and utterly thrilling from start to finish.

In Ricter's hands, the blend of electronica and traditional orchestra feel uniquely suited to help the audience unravel the fierce Miss Sloane.
