A featurette for Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut, Molly’s Game, is now online and gives some insight into the story and character of protagonist Molly Bloom. Based on a true story it stars Jessica Chastain as Bloom.

Molly Bloom was an olympic-class skier who went on to run the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. After being arrested, it soon became clear there was much more to her than the tabloids led us to believe.

Molly’s Game arrives in UK cinemas 1st January. Check out the featurette above and let us know your thoughts below.
