FRED participated in the Press Conference of Molly’s Game, acclaimed writer Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut. Spanning from plagiarism to gun control, Sorkin let the Zurich Film Festival’s audience understand his take on filmmaking: he is still looking forward to working with great directors, but he is not done directing either.

Molly’s Game:  “What makes you feel good about losing? Winning.” Highly ambitious young skier Molly Bloom’s childhood Olympic dreams are dashed following a tragic accident. Her plan B is poker. And thanks to her extraordinary entrepreneurial spirit, Molly soon rises through the ranks to become the organiser of illegal poker games. It’s not long before Hollywood stars are joining business tycoons for a taste of these secret and highly exclusive evenings, and millions of dollars begin exchanging hands. But when the FBI moves in, the Princess of Poker and her lawyer, Charlie, must make an important decision: either offering up their clients or atone for their deeds. The great screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s spirited directorial debut brings the true story of Molly Bloom to the screen, whose memoirs became a worldwide sensation.
