Sorkin’s recent poker movie Molly’s Game is a biopic about “the Poker Princess” Molly Bloom who enjoyed a lavish lifestyle thanks to the poker parties she threw. She organized super luxurious poker parties for eight years and among her frequent visitors there were such prominent names as Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Leonardo DiCaprio.
