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. 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
Molly Bloom's younger brother Jeremy Bloom was also a skier. He was a 3-time World Champion, 2-time Olympian, an 11-time World Cup Gold Medalist, and was inducted into the US Skiing Hall of Fame in 2013. He was also an All-American college football player at the University of Colorado. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles, but never played football professionally. In April 2010, Mr. Bloom founded the marketing software company Integrate. The company was named as the "Best New Company" at the American Business Awards in New York City, and Forbes Magazine called him one of the 30 most influential people in technology under the age of 30.

Chastain is brilliant
Interesting story that is a lot more than just some illegal poker games. It has great acting and digs deep into the politics in our society on many different levels. There has been a lot of power driven women films released this year but this one is at the top of its game.
