Molly's Game ★★★½

I was sold on this film when I heard it was about a real life poker princess who had the world then lost it. I was even more on board when I heard that The lovely Jessica Chastain would be starring. Then I was ready to by my ticket when I found out that Aaron Sorkin would not only be writing but making this his directorial debut. I thought, how can they mess this up. 

After seeing Molly’s Game, I was impressed with Sorkin’s writing as always, and Chastain taking drugs and wearing skimpy clothes was entertaining, but I left the movie thinking that it was just better than average. However, it does have the best father daughter conversation I think I’ve ever seen, for that Kevin Costner scene, I knocked it up another half a star.
