This is a film about Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain), a former Olympic-class skier whose injury forced her to find another career path. Through a mix of luck and ambition, she finds herself running a high-stakes poker game in Los Angeles frequented by celebrity A-listers, where she quickly learns the ropes and uses her tremendous intellect to, essentially, build her own wildly successful business from the ground up. Years later she would find herself the target of an FBI investigation and under federal prosecution with her entire bank account wiped out and potentially years behind bars ahead of her.
