When writer and producer Aaron Sorkin met with Molly Bloom, the "poker princess" who ran high-stakes games with Hollywood's top celebrities, he did not expect to be impressed.Best known for creating the political TV series "The West Wing," Sorkin makes his directorial debut with "Molly's Game," adapted from Bloom's book of the same name.Bloom's book chronicles poker games she ran from 2002 to 2011 that drew celebrities such as Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck and helped her rake in $4 million a year at her peak. Now 39, Bloom was once charged with running an illegal gambling business and was sentenced in 2014 to a year of probation and 200 hours of community service.
