'Molly's Game' is based on the true experiences of Molly Bloom, an aspiring Winter Olympics Skier, who suffered a sporting career ending injury whilst attempting to qualify for the Olympic Games and who subsequently moved into private Poker Games eventually launching her own business for high rollers. These poker games exposed her to physical and other dangers of quite another type.
I enjoy the acting of Jessica Chastain, who plays Molly, and also enjoy the type of films she appears in. You don't have to know about Poker to understand this film although some knowledge probably enhances understanding. The narration to the movie and screen prompts illustrate the Poker games. I wasn't able to follow them fully but nonetheless managed to get the gist of what was happening.
I liked this film.
