This is a “Game” that couldn’t be more fun to watch
Molly’s Game is a cool, crackling, confident film that appeals to your intelligence instead of insulting it.

Molly’s Game is also an incorrigible, unapologetic blast — a dazzling rise-and-fall biopic that races forward, backward and sideways, propelled by long, windy gusts of grade-A Sorkinese.
Few actors on the planet can shift gears as effortlessly as Chastain, who perfectly captures Molly’s chameleon-like ability to adapt to situations and to rationalize her worst behavior.
