Aaron Sorkin United States, 2017

smndvdcl's rating of the film Molly's Game

I'm warming to the star persona of Jessica Chastain. Aaron Sorkin's writer-director credentials have brought out scintillating nuances in characterisation and utilises the strengths of her presence on screen. The exploration of gender politics takes on a new variable. This is not simply a battle of the sexes rendition; contrasting traits of alpha and beta men are explored revealing new layers in the social discourse.
