"Aaron Sorkin and Jessica Chastain pool their formidable talents to tackle a larger-than-life story that bubbles with smarts."
★★★★
-Tomris Laffly, Time Out

".. a typically staccato and silver-tongued drama that boasts a zillion killer lines, at least two of the year’s most exciting performances, and a rare understanding of the difference between power and pride."
★★★★
-David Ehrlich, Indiewire

"It’s a role that demands a wise head, a combative streak, precision comic timing and an occasional air of vulnerability. Chastain nails every single requirement with ease. She’d make a great poker player."
★★★★★
-Terry Staunton, Radio Times

"Its main recommendation, aside from the brilliance of Chastain, is Sorkin’s ingeniously crafted screenplay."
★★★★
- Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

"Ferociously eloquent, densely packed with ideas, immensely entertaining, Molly’s Game is a film which fetishes power and success, while also serving as a cautionary tale."
-Wendy Ide, Screen International


The true story of Molly Bloom, a beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier who 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, unbeknown to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led people to believe.
