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 by
When Molly enters Dean's poker room for the first time, a writing on the wall says "Quo Vadimus", which is the title of Sports Night's last episode. Both Molly's Game and Sports Night were written by Aaron Sorkin. See more »
When Molly is skiing, her bindings have 120 printed on them. She later claims to use a DIN setting of 15. A 120 binding would only go up to 12. See more »
I don't think Molly Bloom could have been cast any better than with Jessica Chastain... she nailed her role. Oddly enough, she looks similar to the actual Molly Bloom.
Great film, love the fact this is based on a true story, and what a great story it was. The rest of the cast were great and the directing was decent, although too much back and forth between many timelines.
8.5 rounded up to 9/10 from me for Chastain's excellent performance.
