I have been all about Jessica Chastain since I first saw her in “Zero Dark Thirty.” And THIS movie looks REALLY cool. “Molly’s Game” is based upon a memoir, Molly’s Game: From Hollywood’s Elite to Wall Street’s Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker, by Molly Bloom.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“The film tells the story of Molly Bloom (Chastain), 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, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally is her criminal defense lawyer (Elba), who learns that there’s much more to Molly than the tabloids lead us to believe.”
It comes out around Thanksgiving (Nov. 22) and I’m all in!
