Molly’s Game (2017) – IMDb 7.4/10 (126,135) R | 2h 20min | Biography, Crime, Drama | 5 January 2018 (USA) It’s a little long, a little boring, but still pretty good. And if it wasn’t based on a true story, I wouldn’t share this one. That said, what’s it about? Molly Bloom, a beautiful young Olympic-class skier, 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.
Written and directed by Aaron Sorkin… if that matters.
