Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming film, Molly’s Game, is set to hit theaters later this month, and while we’ve had a couple of trailers, we have yet to have a look inside the the story behind the story.

STX Entertainment rectifies that with a brand new featurette. In it, we get to see the talent behind of and in front of the camera discuss the true story of Molly Bloom, a woman who ran the biggest poke game of all time.

Of course, this isn’t just a great story, but it also serves as Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkins first foray into feature film directing. With countless classic films under his belt, it’ll be great to see what kind of chops he has at the helm. Given his extensive experience in TV, and his tendency to write incredibly capable people at the top of their game, Molly’s Game certainly seems like a good fit.

The official synopsis for Molly’s Game is below:

MOLLY’S GAME is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, an 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 wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.”

Molly’s Game hits theaters on December 25, 2017.
