‘Molly’s Game’ is based on the true story of Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain), an Olympic-class skier who would become the assistant of a small real-estate company. One day she was told by her boss that she would coordinate a poker game (an illegal one), and that would be part of her job. This poker game featured the biggest and largest of life people with celebs and politicians.
Eventually, her boss would stop paying her, so she quit and took all of her clients. She would up the anty and make even more money than ever before. Fast forward and the FBI agents wanted her.
Molly would have a Lawyer to partner up with (Idris Elba) and it seems most of this film is flashbacks while talking to him. The agents wanted more than just Molly. They didn’t want Molly, they wanted names.
The film looks incredible. It’s directed by Aaron Sorkin and also stars Idris Elba, Chris O’Dowd, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, and more.
‘Molly’s Game’ releases November 22, 2017.
