Based on a true story,Molly’s Game follows renowned ‘poker princess’ Molly Bloom (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 wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally is criminal defence lawyer Charlie Jaffey (Elba), who learns that there is more to Molly than the tabloids led the public to believe.
