Take a look back at Jessica Chastain 's movie career in photos. Molly Bloom, a beautiful young Olympic-class skier, 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 was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.

The film follows the life of Molly Bloom who fell out of competitive skiing after a debilitating injury and moved to LA where she got involved with underground poker and eventually struck out on her own and started running her own games until they were raided by the FBI.
Jessica Chastain gives an excellent performance and is backed by a strong supporting cast, including Idris Elba and Kevin Costner.
Additionally, the flashback narrative structure helps to keep the film moving and builds intrigue. A scene late in the movie that is clearly meant to be the emotional climax of the film between them does not come off very cleanly, with her father giving her "therapy" and explaining that their animosity came from her seeing and subconsciously knowing he was cheating on her mom.
The story is well told and Chastain is just fantastic the entire film, so I still was deeply invested in her journey, but had we understood her psychology better and seen her ambition for success more than in a couple forced moments between childhood skiing flashbacks and running the poker games, it would have been everything I could want.
Her struggles with depression and addiction are very important and great when mentioned, but they're only really present when Sorkin explicitly draws attention to them rather than integrated naturally throughout the script, though Chastain does give hints here and there in her interactions.
Idris Elba is great as her lawyer, with a great monologue late in the film and consistently good chemistry in dialogue with Chastain.
We do see some interesting legal themes in the unjust way the government or FBI take advantage of the pressure the legal system puts on people.
Most of the thematic meat, however, comes from the social cues going on in the poker games. The games are a transparent look at the most powerful people in the world, and what do they look like?
All men, almost all white, and they all lust for power and women, who they see as objects. Chastain uses this to her advantage by hiring a few other women who the men will lust after but who are also very intelligent and aware, as well as using her pull over men to keep them coming back and rack up some big tips.
I thought Sorkin did a very solid job directing, with the attack scene being especially well done with its use of pale colors. Molly's Game is a very good movie and Chastain's performance, one of my favorites in recent memory, elevates it even more.
Slightly more thematic depth and investigation into her psyche and how she views competing and succeeding and Molly's Game would go down as one of my favorite movies ever, but as it stands it's a great biopic and an enthralling story.
