Samantha De Leon and Kirby Carlock give their thoughts on Molly’s Game!
Synopsis- The true story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game and became an FBI target.
Samantha’s thoughts- I really enjoyed this movie. Small disclaimer that never has Aaron Sorkin failed to make good content. His writing is like butter like you never hear some one complain about the butter in their food, because it never fails. He writes so well that even a small minded person as myself can feel as if I know everything about the poker world. How he makes his characters speak is just glorious
Kirby’s thoughts- Now his directing though, it was fine. Nothing crazy. Seemed as if he played it safe. The story and script had the same feel as The Social Network did in which you are going back and forth between the past and the future. Acting was just fun, Jessica Chastan and Idris Elba are a lot of fun to see on screen. If you have seen the trailer and this seems like your type of movie then I highly recommend it.
