    The writing is pleased with itself and that makes the film hard to love. If you would like to see the main character change clothes around 35 times, then this may be the film for you. 1 year 4 months ago

    Molly's Game is no less than what you'd expect from Aaron Sorkin: Great. The script crackles with his signature patter, wit and driving pulse that propels this film forward. It is slick, moves with a purpose and never leaves you hanging.

    Jessica Chastain is equally great, carrying this film to its full potential. Idris Elba is fine, certainly conveying the confused and helpful lawyer role to perfection (though his accent did slip out every once in a while).

    For a first time director, Sorkin does a great job. His editing really carries the day, and the parallel narrative serves his purpose well.

    If there's anything to quibble about, it's the motivation of the main character toward the end of the film, but I'll leave that as a minor point of contention. Sorkin's script certainly does not leave that stone unturned, and frankly gives us a great scene spoiler (though I still doubt the motivations despite the scene's purpose).

    All in all, Molly's Game is more greatness from Sorkin's mind.
