Nominated for the 2018 Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. The writer of 'The West Wing', 'The Social Network' and 'A Few Good Men' Aaron Sorkin directs his first film with 'Molly's Game', the true story of Molly Bloom - an 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, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defence lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.
★★★★ "Thanks to Sorkin’s caustic, witty screenplay and Chastain’s blazing performance, it never loses its momentum or its fatalistic humour" - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
★★★★ "Jessica Chastain is phenomenal" - Wendy Ide, The Observer
★★★★ "Another big winner for Sorkin" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
