“Molly’s Game” (2017)

Aaron Sorkin is an extremely talented screenwriter, most well-known for his exceptional dialogue, and here we get to see that he’s also a talented director. He keeps the film’s plot flowing at a steady pace, and the story is never boring. On top of that, Jessica Chastain gives a commanding lead performance, making you easily buy that she could run and maintain an empire. The film does go on a touch too long, likely due to Aaron Sorkin refusing to cut down much of his, admittedly well written, dialogue, but this is a gripping and engrossing fact-based drama, that will make you easily overlook that this film is about 10 minutes too long.
