"Molly's Game" is based on the incredible, true story of Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain), a young, charismatic skier and former Olympic hope who has to give up her career after a serious injury. She then puts her law school on hold and comes through a temporary job in contact with a world that is dominated by rich and powerful men: The underground poker scene in Hollywood. When she realizes that her intelligence and discipline make her ideal for organizing such events, she puts everything on one card: hosting the world's most exclusive and riskiest poker tournament for the rich and powerful of Los Angeles - with dizzying stakes. The full accounts of the sports, business and entertainment VIPs will give her a decade of glamor and success. But one day Molly's streak of luck sparks unwanted attention as she accidentally brings members of the Russian mafia to her gaming table. Soon after, she is arrested and charged in the middle of the night by 17 heavily-armed FBI agents. In her lawyer Charlie Jaffey (Idris Elba) Molly finds her only ally. But to defend her, Charlie must be 100% convinced of her innocence: how much did she really know about illegal machinations behind the scenes of her poker nights? And why does she insist on concealing the names of her celebrity customers? Which game is Molly Bloom really playing?
