Molly’s Game Rated 15

Molly’s Game

Dir. Aaron Sorkin. USA, 2017. 2h 20m. Starring Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Jon Bass, Michael Cera, Chris O’Dowd.

Based on the real story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game before becoming an FBI target. Writer Aaron Sorkin’s (The Social Network) directorial debut is a highly entertaining, slick thriller.

'What makes Molly's Game more than an entertaining, if enjoyably familiar big-screen Sorkin-fest (whip-smart characters spouting rapid-fire dialogue while slyly revealing personality traits) is that it's a profoundly emotional film.’ ★★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times

‘Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin lets rip with another marathon-sprint of exhausting and exhilarating and exasperating dialogue, in the process switching up his game to hyphenate status, and making a very stylish debut as director.’ ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
