Join us for the red carpet screening of Molly’s Game to benefit Wish of a Lifetime. Jeremy Bloom will moderate a live post-film discussion with Aaron Sorkin at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.

After the Q+A, make your way to the private after party at the Chambers Grant Salon directly below the Ellie to meet the people that brought Molly’s incredible story to life and rock out with Denver’s own Tracksuit Wedding.

Written and directed by the inimitable Aaron Sorkin for an all-star cast, this drama is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, a Colorado-bred Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents.

Jessica Chastain stars as Bloom, whose dreams of an athletic career were cut short by a back injury. So she took another route to glory, albeit clandestine, as a gambling impresario, catering to Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, members of the Russian mob. When glory turned to ignominy, she found an ally in criminal-defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey—played by the ever-watchable Idris Elba—who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.

Supporting players Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Chris O’Dowd and still others add the weight of their talent to Sorkin’s debut as a feature director, which crackles with the intelligence and intensity of the dialogue he’s known for.
