Molly’s Game. 2017. USA. Directed by Aaron Sorkin. DCP. 140 min.
“After a freak accident at the US Olympic Trials ends her brief skiing career, Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain) moves to Hollywood and tries something new: poker. Working as a personal assistant by day and a poker hostess by night, it's not long before Molly's talent and entrepreneurial spirit find her running her own game. Abounding with Hollywood A-listers and business tycoons, Molly’s game quickly became the most exclusive, and discreet. But when Molly becomes the target of an FBI investigation, her former clients are nowhere to be found. With her lawyer Charlie Jaffey (Idris Elba) as her only ally, will she still support them?” (Toronto International Film Festival screening notes). Courtesy of Sony Pictures.
