“Another tour de force, a perfect match of script and actress, where Chastain captures her character’s fascinating combination of ambition, ruthlessness, and street smarts.”~The Atlantic
Aroview: The true story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game and became an FBI target. A smart film which marks the directorial debut of screenwriter Adam Sorkin (THE SOCIAL NETWORK), whose trademark rapid-fire witty dialogue can be found at full force here. Jessica Chastain impresses in her portrayal of a powerful and imperfect woman defending herself in what she describes as “the world’s most exclusive, decadent man cave.”

5 stars (Exceptional) Gripping thriller, not a moment wasted. Outstanding acting, direction & script. Vivid picture of a woman trying to succeed in a man's world where all that counts is "winning". A great film, best of 2018 so far.~Sandy
