Attorney Charlie Jaffey (Idris Elba) began defending Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain) only when he was convinced that she was a woman of integrity. Later, however, as our exclusive clip from Molly’s Game reveals, he asks Molly to do something that would be distinctly out of character for her. Why?
The FBI targeted Molly because she was running the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game. Really, though, they are more interested in her clients and intend to pressure her as much as possible to achieve their goals – thus, Charlie’s concern for keeping Molly out of prison.
Kevin Costner also stars in the real-life drama, directed by Aaron Sorkin. Watch the clip below and then get your tickets to Molly’s Game; it opens in theaters everywhere on Monday, December 25.
