In acclaimed writer Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut, Jessica Chastain is Molly Bloom: a young skier and former Olympic hopeful who becomes a successful entrepreneur, and the target of an FBI investigation, when she establishes a high-stakes, international poker game. Also starring Idris Alba and Kevin Costner.
Aaron Sorkin: Originally a playwright-turned-screenwriter, Sorkin eventually found television writing; perhaps you’ve heard of The Newsroom, The West Wing, Sports Night, or his fantastic one-season cutie Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip?
Jessica Chastain (lead actress) has embodied many standout names over the years: nurturing Antonina (The Zookeeper’s Wife, 2017), ambitious Miss Sloane (2016), creepy big sis Lady Lucille (Crimson Peak, 2015), and faithful Murph (Interstellar, 2014) to name only a few. Soon Ingrid Bergman and Smith/Mastermind (of X-Men fame) will be added to her mounting list of cinematic characterizations.
