Now a major motion picture, written and directed by Aaron Sorkin and starring Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, and Michael Ceraâ€”the true story of "Hollywoodâ€™s poker princess" who gambled everything, won big, then lost it all.
Molly Bloom reveals how she built one of the most exclusive, high-stakes underground poker games in the worldâ€”an insiderâ€™s story of excess and danger, glamour and greed.
In the late 2000s, Molly Bloom, a twentysomething petite brunette from Loveland Colorado, ran the highest stakes, most exclusive poker game Hollywood had ever seenâ€”she was its mistress, its lion tamer, its agent, and its oxygen. Everyone wanted in, few were invited to play.
Hundreds of millions of dollars were won and lost at her table. Mollyâ€™s game became the game for those in the knowâ€”celebrities, business moguls, and millionaires. Molly staged her games in palatial suites with beautiful views and exquisite amenities. She flew privately, dined at exclusive restaurants, hobnobbed with the heads of Hollywood studios, was courted by handsome leading men, and was privy to the worldâ€™s most delicious gossip, until it all came crashing down around her.
Mollyâ€™s Game is a behind the scenes look at Mollyâ€™s game, the life she created, the life she lost, and what she learned in the process.
