Review: Miss Sloane

Trailer Talk: ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’

— by SHERICE ANTOINETTE — Gary Oldman is an incredible actor. In the 30-plus films he’s starred in, Oldman has given magnificent performances, yet he’s never been nominated for an Academy Award. Hopefully, that will change this Oscar season with his portrayal of espionage veteran, Ge[...]
