Molly’s Game


Based on Molly Bloom’s memoir (Molly’s Game: From Hollywood Elite to Wall Street’s Billionair­e Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Undergroun­d Poker), this movie features Jessica Chastain as the former US Olympic-class skier who found herself operating the world’s most exclusive weekly high-stakes poker game. The undergroun­d venue became hugely successful and attracted players from the ranks of Hollywood actors, Wall Street tycoons, sports stars and unbeknowns­t to her, the Russian mafia.

As the connection to the Russian mafia surfaced, Bloom became the target of an FBI investigat­ion. Her one ally was her criminal defence lawyer, Charlie Jaffey (Idris Elba), who learned that there was much more to her than the public was led to believe.
