Molly’s Game

The TV Guide - - DVD RELEASES -

Star­ring Jes­sica Chas­tain, Idris Elba. Di­rec­tor Aaron Sorkin.

It is time for some real girl power, great writ­ing and a fan­tas­tic di­rec­to­rial de­but, with ac­com­plished screen­writer Aaron Sorkin de­liv­er­ing the goods on ev­ery level in this amaz­ing real-life tale. Molly’s Game tells the story of Molly Bloom, a promis­ing Olympic skier turned queen of the un­der­ground poker scene in Amer­ica. She counted busi­ness ty­coons, Hol­ly­wood moguls and sports stars among her clients un­til an FBI raid brought it all crash­ing down. The movie is squarely about how a woman can take it to the boys in the crim­i­nal un­der­world. Sorkin re­lies on char­ac­ter and good old-fash­ioned plot and struc­ture to the tell the story and the ap­proach shines through.
