Molly’s Game is the intriguing story of Molly Bloom, a former skier and Olympic hopeful, who was indicted for her role in organizing and hosting illegal high stakes poker games that were attended by Hollywood elite, leaders of industry and commerce, high-profile professional athletes, political leaders and members of organized crime. Based on her memoirs of the same name, Molly’s Game also explores her personal motivations and family life which are inextricably woven into this complex narrative (Klaus Ming March 2018).
