Great movie but not for all!

Molly's game is a really interesting movie but I don't think a person younger than 16 is going to be interest in it or is going to understand the plot. Jessica Chastian as the leading actress is brialliant! There aren't any sexual implications but there is some violence, a lot of drinking and poker games.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
