Molly's Game

Molly Bloom never intended to run the world's most exclusive, high-stakes poker game, nor did she ever anticipate that she would be implicated in a high-profile legal case. As the first trailer for Molly's Game reveals, Molly (Jessica Chastain) was an underappreciated assistant whose talents at running an underground poker game for her boss were taken for granted.

So she started her own private game, soon becoming a huge success with a clientele that included movie stars, directors and business tycoons. Such success comes at a high price for Molly, leading to an FBI investigation and the need for a world-class lawyer (Idris Elba) to help her prevail.
