4-14-2018 MOVIE REVIEW: MOLLY'S GAME (2017)

Famed screenwriter Aaron Sorkin makes his directorial debut telling the true story of former United States Olympic skier Molly Bloom who after a career-ending injury becomes one of the most prolific operators of high stakes poker and subsequently wanted by the FBI.  Sorkin known for his use of extensive dialogue packs a mighty punch into this one-hundred and forty minute feature and the script might be longer than Bloom's two-hundred and seventy-two-page memoir on which the film is based.  Spectacular performances from Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, and Kevin Costner.  ***
