Film buffs who fancy poker will be looking forward to the new film ‘Molly’s Game’ which will hit the theatres this November. The new film is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, a former Olympic-class skier who operated an exclusive underground high-stakes poker event for a decade in Hollywood before getting arrested as part of an FBI sting operation in the middle of the night.
Molly's Game was recently aired at the Toronto International Film Festival and received some mixed, but mostly positive reviews so far.

Most of those top critics concede that something is lacking in the film, but commend it nonetheless. The consensus from early reviews highlights the film's insightful story, entertaining script, and splendid casting.
