Aaron Sorkin United States, 2017

Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Molly's Game

There is one common trait almost all gambling dramas share: they make the audience want to be the protagonist for the first half of the film only to retain roughly 1/3 of the same people by the time the credits roll. "Molly's Game" is one of the most compelling films of the genre since Martin Scorsese's "Casino." Forget shooting and scoring, Aaron Sorkin's directorial debut is the equivalent of a triple-double.
