Powerhouse screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s (The Social Network, A Few Good Men) directorial debut is based on the true story of Molly Bloom (Chastain), an Olympic-class skier turned poker guru. Smart and ambitious, but directionless, Bloom falls into the world of high-stakes poker by accident and ends up running the most exclusive game in the world for a decade. That is, until she becomes the target of the Russian mob and the FBI.
