MOLLY’S GAME

Fairlady - - CONTENTS -

This film is based on the me­moir of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-level skier who, af­ter badly in­jur­ing her­self, lands up run­ning an ex­clu­sive high-stakes poker game. It has some great per­for­mances, es­pe­cially from Jes­sica Chas­tain, Idris Elba and Michael Cera, who plays a par­tic­u­larly loath­some film ac­tor (ap­par­ently based on Tobey Maguire). The script is pacy and un­usual, and leaves out the bor­ing bits. And, I have to say, Kevin Cost­ner is a treat.
