“I’m Molly Bloom do you know about me?” “I read your indictment after I got your call last night and I bought your book.” “Are you taking me on as a client?” ‘Molly’s Game’ is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, a young skier and former Olympic hopeful who becomes a successful entrepreneur (and a target of a FBI investigation) when she establishes a high-stakes, international poker game. “You managed to build a multi-million dollar business by using your wits.” “I’m about to be charged in federal court.” “Well nobody’s perfect.”
“I was in a room with movie stars, directors and business titans, they were going all in all the time. The humiliation had given way to blinding anger at my powerlessness I wasn’t gonna wait before I put a plan in place.” From 2002 to 2011 the most exclusive poker game in the country was played by the richest most famous most powerful men in the world. It was run by a 26-year-old woman. Molly’s players included movie stars, business titans and unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. She 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.
“I’ll be hosting a game in this suite first buy-in $250,000.” “Let’s play.” Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe. “Have you seen the other names in your indictment? Are you into the Russian mob?”
“There’s a new offer on the table to complete immunity if you hand over the hard drives.” “You’ve seen what’s on those hard drives lives and careers will be ruined.” “Why you in this alone, where are the people you’re protecting by not telling the whole story?” “I’ll tell them everything they want to know about me, about me that’s it.”
