Molly's Game ★★★

I'm not the hugest Aaron Sorkin fan, but I do like some of his work.

And I liked "Molly's Game."

The film starts with a bang and has a nice pace to it. It's overlong, but doesn't feel overlong. Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba are fantastic, as is Michael Cera as the evil Tobey Maguire. The film isn't as cohesive as it might be, because it's about too many things: competition, daddy issues, ambition, the law, etc. It's entertaining, but somewhat less than the some of its entertaining parts.
