Best of 2017… Film – Movies still to look forward to

Nick Lay casts an eye forward to the films we still have to get excited about in 2017...

Molly’s Game

Legendary screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, Steve Jobs) makes his directorial debut with Molly’s Game, a drama based on the real life rise and fall of “poker princess” Molly Bloom. Bloom, a former Olympic skiing hopeful, went on to attract the attention of the FBI as the founder of a long-running high-stakes international poker game, frequented by countless Hollywood A-listers.

Already recognised as an industry standard on the writing front, Sorkin finally gets the intriguing opportunity to bring his own work to life and show off his chops behind the camera, supported here by a cast featuring Jessica Chastain as Bloom, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner and Michael Cera.

UK release date: December 29
