This movie is based on the life of Molly Bloom, a former Olympic skier, who went on to make a career out of hosting poker games for big-stakes players. Among her regular guests were actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck and Toby Maguire.
Her secret to success was keeping the games hush, hush, while luring in wealthy players with posh locations and pretty women. The plan was working well until some of the guests at her table turned into ugly. Eventually the FBI came knocking, and she, along with thirty others, were arrested for involvement with Russian-American organized-crime, illegal gambling and money laundering.
The movie Molly's Game is based on Bloom's memoir, and follows her court hearing and sentencing. Jessica Chasten takes on the role of the "poker princess" and Idris Elba plays her lawyer.
From the Studio:
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.
