Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut, a poker movie titled “Molly’s Game” has now officially released in theaters. So far the movie has been hit by a lot of positive reviews and holds a relatively high note at IMDB.com of 7.4 points in a 1 to 10 point scale, as well as 87% audience approval on Rotten Tomatoes.
The all-star cast includes Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Michael Cera and Kevin Costner.
Much of the praise for the movie is aimed at Jessica Chastain's performance as Molly Bloom, described by UK national newspaper The Independent as a "force of nature performance".
It certainly is a facsinating story; coming from a family of high achievers Bloom's dreams of olympic glory are cut short after breaking her back in a horrific crash during her olympic trial.
Celebrities who played in Bloom-run games in L.A. or New York include Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Toby Maguire. Bloom’s memoir, which the film is based on, included a claim that Maguire once asked her to “bark like a seal who wants a fish” for a $1,000 chip.
Bloom was making as much as $50,000 a night for setting up the underground games.
