Molly's Game

Verdict

7/10

Thoughts (spoilers)

It was fine. But there really should have been better explanations of... everything. The timeline was confusing. So was the slang (what is a "rake"? What does it mean to have "money in the streets?"). What exactly about poker may or may not have been legal?

The scene where the father randomly shows up at the ice rink completely broke any suspension of disbelief. Unless he put a tracking device on her, there's no way j he'd find her. The scene following, the "therapy session", was also dumb.

Anyway, it was fine, even though it was hard to be sympathetic to Molly's situation.
