By Suzanne A. Marshall from the April 2018 Edition
Jessica Chastain, Idris Alba, Kevin Costner
Aaron Sorkin (also screenwriter)
“The true story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game and be-came an FBI target.”
From my perspective, when Aaron Sorkin is involved with a movie, I want to see it. His writing is always so good and tends to be fast paced and detailed. I thoroughly enjoyed this true story and was completely riveted to the screen in order not to miss the complex dialogue and the swift presentation of a lot of background monologue by Jessica Chastain as we learn the business of the high stakes poker game world. And I do mean high stakes. The movie was very well done and the entire cast were believable.
This movie was nominated for 41 awards industry wide including Best Actress and Best Screenwriter which included The Golden Globes and the Oscars.
The IMDB rating is 7.5/10 based on about 37,000 viewers.
