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.

  • 4 stars "For some reason, the actress in the main character does not seem to fit in great - just my impression."
  • 5 stars "Incredible movie. Very well acted. Gripping. Emotional. Should have won awards."
  • 5 stars "Perhaps the best movie I have seen in the past year. Jessica Chastain's performance Oscar worthy as far as I am concerned. Loved the way how she narrated the scenes throughout, starting with the opening ski race as well as flash backs in her past life and right to the end. A very fascinating story that had me involved through. Idris Elba also was good."
