Aaron Sorkin (TVs The West Wing, Moneyball) received a third Oscar-nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for his entertaining directing debut film, which features his trademark rich and witty dialogue. Jessica Chastain (The Zookeeper’s Wife, Zero Dark Thirty) stars as “the princess of poker” an Olympic level skier felled by injury who, sending her life in a completely different direction, found a new career running exclusive, high-stakes poker games for the rich and famous. Idris Elba co-stars as the lawyer she finds to help her when she is arrested by the FBI; Kevin Costner plays her father not happy to see the change in trajectory of his daughter’s life. This is a smart, high-energy character study of a resilient woman trying to make it in a male dominated world.
