Oscar-and-Emmy-winning writer Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, The West Wing) makes his directorial debut with this high-stakes drama that tells the incredible true story of Molly Bloom (Chastain), a former Olympic skier who wound up getting arrested by the Feds for illegally running one of the world's most exclusive poker clubs, for which players included super-rich celebrities, Hollywood elites, powerful business tycoons, and the Russian mob.

Co-starring Michael Cera, Kevin Costner, Jeremy Strong, and Chris O'Dowd, the film is based on Bloom's memoir of the same name and was adapted by Sorkin.

"Molly's Game" will be arriving in theaters on November 22nd.

synopsis:
MOLLY'S GAME is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, an 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.
