Synopsis

Based on the true story of Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain), 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. She is charged with operating an illegal gambling business.

She immediately contacts her defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey (Idris Elba). Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars and business titans.  She also manages to get the attention of the Russian mob. She is offered complete immunity in exchange for hard drives that will bring down the mob. However, Molly has a different plan and isn't willing to give up.

  • 3 stars "LOVED IT"
  • 4 stars "EXCELLENT MOVIE"
  • 5 stars "I liked this movie. I am not a poker player but do gamble on horse racing. Even though the movie is a little long I never lost interest. They moved the story line along well and explained the poker action to non knowledgable viewers. It also worked on various levels, family relations, legal thriller and all the various situations Molley faced."
