On Molly Bloom’s “Molly’s Game: From Hollywood’s Elite to Wall Street’s Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker” (2014).
Molly Bloom (Samantha Ayler / Jessica Chastain) is a former skier and Olympic hope. She becomes a successful entrepreneur – and an object of an investigation by the FBI after developing international high stakes poker games. She becomes one of the most intriguing women of the 21st century in America. In 2014, the “queen of poker” was found guilty of illegal gambling for $ 100 million and was sentenced to probation. Bloom is a young, charismatic Olympic hope in ski that is forced to put an end to the sport after a severe injury. After her career as an athlete has ceased, her family urges her to follow right, but Molly decides to rest for a year and accepts seasonal work. This work brings it into an ambition that requires sport-like instincts and discipline: to lead the world’s most illustrious high-stakes poker games. The deep pockets of the Hollywood giants, including Ben Affleck, Toby Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio, sports stars and business magnates, provided her with a decade of glamorous success. But Molly attracts the attention of sinful people when she comes in contact with members of the Russian mafia. The successful series ended sharply when arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents waving firearms. Faced with serious criminal charges, Molly’s only ally is lawyer Charlie Jeffreys (Idris Elbe) who finds Molly Bloom to be far more than what they are trying to suggest tabloids.
