Based on a true story, Crime, Drama
Written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, this is a gripping American crime drama that tells the true story of Molly Bloom; a one time Olympic skier who became famous for running high stakes poker games. Bustling with Sorkin’s quick-fire dialogue, the film focuses on Bloom’s rise to fame and subsequent fall from grace as the glamourous, shrewd woman behind celebrity-packed poker games that had everyone from billionaires, actors, sports-stars and the Russian mob demanding to get in. Eventually arrested by the FBI, Molly’s relationship with her defence lawyer reveals the fascinating and extraordinary complexities of her situation in the male-dominated, elite world of poker and how it fed her dependency on money and fame.
