(Jessica Chastain & Idris Elba)

M-Net (channel 101) will show the movie Molly’s Game on February 2, 2019, at 21h00. The film is directed by Aaron Sorkin.

Jessica Chastain stars in the riveting biography drama based on the thrilling true story of Molly Bloom, a beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons.

Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknown to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defence lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led people to believe.
