Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing) makes his long awaited directing debut with Molly’s Game, based on the best-selling memoir by Molly Bloom.
Told in flashbacks to her lawyer (Idris Elba) after she is arrested by the FBI, Molly’s Game charts Molly’s journey from Olympic skier to running the world’s most exclusive underground poker game.
Chastain excels with Sorkin’s whip-crack dialogue, demonstrating both the strength and brittleness of Molly’s persona in a world of adrenaline fuelled excess.
