"Molly's Game" (2017): Movie Review
Jim Pagiamtzis Review:
"Aaron Sorkin movie mastery continues in this true story that exposed the dark side of hollywood elite in high stakes poker. Jessica Chastain (Molly Bloom) Idris Elba (Charles Jaffey) give spectacular perfomances the lead to character driven movie evolve and keep you guessing how it will end!"
8 of 10 stars
MOLLY’S GAME is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.
