Molly's Game ★★½

Watched this on a flight from Toronto to London. This was OK. Sorkin's movies are one of the movies that you need subtitles to fully appreciate the movie; otherwise, if you have bad audio like I did, the speedy line delivery just becomes garbled. That probably affected my enjoyment of this film.

It's a decent movie though, but mainly because Chastain does a fantastic job of carrying the film. She's killer at seizing the scene and taking her lines to the next (emotional) level. The other smaller characters do a great job at supporting her too. Not just Idris Elba, but also Brian d'Arcy James and Bill Camp.

I'm glad Chastain didn't get a nomination for this movie though. She's good, but she's been better.
