In the high-stakes world of political power-brokers, Elizabeth Sloane is the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in D.C. But when taking on the most powerful opponent of her career, she finds winning may come at too high a price.
In May 1940, the fate of Western Europe hangs on British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who must decide whether to negotiate with Adolf Hitler, or fight on knowing that it could mean a humiliating defeat for Britain and its empire.

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, 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.

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 :))
