So, what exactly is MOLLY’S GAME?
Well, let’s just say the truth is often far more extraordinary, compelling and explosive than fiction. From the outset of Molly Bloom’s story, a former high achieving Olympian Skier turned hugely successful High Stakes Poker Game organiser, the viewer is drawn to her strength of character, drive and intelligence. As a female lead Molly, played by the talented Jessica Chastain, oozes sex appeal that although undeniable is outranked by her conviction and integrity. Molly’s Game is a fun movie to watch, but it’s also a story with a lot of depth. It’s a story of ambition, family, loss, hope, chance and skill. The struggles and triumphs that all make part of the human experience. The film will no doubt entertain you, it’s a great and true story, portrayed by a star cast including Idris Elba and Kevin Costner, more than that, it will move you in ways you probably won’t be expecting. Definitely worth a trip to the cinema to see.
