Tensions run high in a thrilling poker drama
Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut in 2017 (he also wrote the screenplay) is based on the memoir of Molly Bloom who, when her dream of becoming an Olympic skier was ended by injury, began running poker games involving celebrities, sports personalities, business tycoons and the Russian mob – until the FBI caught up with her. Jessica Chastain plays
Bloom, with support from Idris Elba, Kevin Costner and Chris O’Dowd.
