Nominated for best adapted screenplay, Aaron Sorkin's Molly's Game is brilliant film featuring Sorkin's classic dialogue we've on come to know along with one of the best performances of Jessica Chastain's impeccable acting career.
Having loved the film upon seeing it in theaters. Now that I've had a chance to re-watch the film on Blu-ray. Its clear that we should have had Molly's Game in our top 10 films of 2017 list. The incredible true-life story of Molly Bloom is absolutely riveting and from start to finish and you absolutely cannot take your eyes off the screen. Every actor is bringing their A-game here with the supporting players giving brilliant performances as well. Even Kevin Costner as Molly's father gives his best performance in decades and almost steals the whole damn film in a beautifully crafted scene between a father and daughter. There is also a stand out scene with Edris Elba's character dripping with classic Sorkin dialogue that is jaw-dropping.
I can't praise this film enough and I'm giving it an almost perfect 4.5 out 5 stars. A film that should have gotten a best picture nomination. This one is a must own on Blu-ray!
