Aaron Sorkin is one of the best writers in the history of TV and Film. Best known for his work in TV, creating The West Wing and The Newsroom, he has also proven himself time and time again, having written such classics as A Few Good Men, The American President, The Social Network, Moneyball, and Steve Jobs. And now he has proven himself an equally worthy director with his directorial debut, Molly's Game. In typical Sorkin fashion, expect the dialogue to come fast and furious, forcing you to pay attention to each and every interesting line. And these lines are delivered perfectly by all. Jessica Chastain stars as the titular Molly, a real life former Olympic skier who ran an infamous high stakes poker game. Idris Elba and Kevin Costner costar. This is a highly interesting and entertaining film, and one of my Top 10 of 2017.
Who is this movie for? Fans of Sorkin and Chastain will not be disappointed. Go see it!
