Aaron Sorkin is my favorite writer working….in any format. The scribe behind The West Wing, The Newsroom, A Few Good Men, The American President, Moneyball, Charlie Wilson’s War, has written some of the greatest screenplays of this generation. Now, he’s directing his own script in Molly’s Game. The second trailer reveals more about the insane dilemma Molly Bloom finds herself in when she’s put on trial for running elite poker games, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg of nuts this story is and I’ll let your read the full description below for a better summary. Molly’s Game bows November 22, 2017.
The true story of Molly Bloom, a beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier who 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, unbeknown to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led people to believe.
