Molly Bloom, a beautiful young Olympic-class skier, 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.

It kept me fused ass to chair, eyes to screen for the entire duration!
Saw the movie last night, one of the best movies (if not THE BEST) I seen for some time now.
All the characters are razor sharp, the entire dialog pierces your brain like an ice pick, great humor, great sarcasm, snappy lines, you feel like you need more and more during the movie (gets you addicted like a bad habit).
One of the best discussions in cinema history (the therapy scene).
Go see it in cinema, the crowd effect amplifies the emotions.
My mark for this is 8/10 , 10/10 been an absolute masterpiece made every hundred years or so :))
