More engaging during the flashback poker games and ensuing crimes than during the framing scenes with Molly’s lawyer and family. It’s good that Sorkin finally decided to have a woman in the lead role, though I can’t help but notice he still takes every opportunity to let the men in her life speechify at length to her. Still, it’s progress.
This is Sorkin’s first time directing for the screen, and you have to figure a stronger director (like Fincher) might have reeled this in a little. It feels slightly too long and over-written. Still reasonably entertaining on the whole.
