Molly’s Game

{4.5/5} “I was raised to be a champion. My goal was to win. At what and against whom — those were just details.”

Molly’s Game, released in 2017

Molly Bloom was a professional skier until she had an accident. Then she stumbled into the world of big-money poker played by the rich and famous. After assisting at a few games, she started running her own game. And after running games for years, she was arrested by the FBI.

This movie is based on a true story. It’s about the highs and lows of legal and illegal gambling.

The dialogue between Molly and her lawyer is brilliant.

Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, and Kevin Costner are all mesmerizing.

Stars Michael Cera, Chris O’Dowd, and Graham Greene. Directed by Aaron Sorkin (the TV show The Newsroom).
