Storyline

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, 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. Written by STX Entertainment

Very well done and incredibly fast paced
24 September 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film has as many words as a three part six hour miniseries.

I wonder how many pages of dialog it has for a two hour movie - i bet it sets a new record.

This is Aaron Sorkin's directorial debut at 2017 Tiff.

We know him for brilliant scripts and this is another.

What sets this film apart is its frenetic pace. I don't know if the dialog was sped up or if the director said to the actors over again "that was great, but lets try it again - faster".

Particularly noteworthy was fast paced rant from Idris Elba that I believe was the fastest he has ever spoken before.

What also is amazing is that every word is perfectly pronounced and understandable, more so than many other films I saw including Idris Elba's other film at TIFF.
