I’ve been anticipating Molly’s Game since it was announced that not only would mega-writer (granted, a mega-writer with some issues) Aaron Sorkin write the film but would make it his directorial debut as well. Now the first trailer is here and we can start getting an idea about how he did:
I have to admit, I don’t think I’m into this so far. The cast is great, Sorkin’s direction appears at least serviceable (who can say from a trailer?), and the dialog has that Sorkin feel, but I don’t find myself interested in the story at all. I don’t know. It’s possible the rise and fall of a person running an underground poker room just isn’t my cup of tea.
But it might be yours! What do you think of the trailer? Let us know in the comments. Molly's Game comes out November 22.
