Plot

The famous screenwriter Aaron Sorkin ('Moneyball', 'The Social Network', 'Steve Jobs') makes his directorial debut moving to the big screen memories of Molly Bloom, a professional ex-skier at the end of the decade of the 2000 ended up being known as "poker princess" in Los Angeles. Bloom organized clandestine high stakes poker games frequenting magnates, athletes and Hollywood stars like Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Ben Affleck for eight years. Finally it was investigated by the FBI, who followed the tracks of their criminal activities to give chase in a raid which involved up to 17 agents. Bloom was sentenced to one year of probation, to pay a fine of $ 1,000 and to repay $ 125,000 as part of the legal agreement with the Justice, after being charged with illegal gambling linked to Russian organized crime in April 2013.

Trivia Molly's Game

The real Molly Bloom, who is banned from Canada because she pleaded guilty to a federal crime in the United States, was granted a 48-hour pass to visit Canada for the movie's premiere at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival). Molly Bloom told the director Aaron Sorkin that she wanted Jessica Chastain to play her, and so it was. Because of schedules, Idris Elba and Jessica Chastain had only 10 days to shoot. They shot 45 pages in the first 6 days. They mostly rehearsed virtually before the shooting, and in between takes during the shooting of the movie.
