Cinema Sunday #8 | Molly’s Game

Molly's Game Poster

The true story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game and became an FBI target.

Jessica Chastain does an amazing portrayal of Molly Bloom, an ambitious and intelligent prospective law school student whose summer plans suddenly lead her on the path to leading the infamous high stakes poker game that involved Hollywood celebrities and Wall Street CEOs.

The plot is intense and glamorous; it’s almost unbelievable, except it’s not. The movie is based off the real story of Molly Bloom, the poker princess. Her public portrayal sets her up as a femme-fatale like character and ruthless in nature, yet the movie takes care show the complexity of the character. The story keeps you on edge.

Highly recommend.
