Aaron Sorkin thinks Molly's Game is his version of The Crucible

How do we know this? Because he references Arthur Miller's famous play about the Salem witch trials—which was written as a commentary on the Hollywood Blacklist—multiple times over the course of the movie, at one point having the titular heroine echo one of its most famous lines. 

Sadly for Sorkin, Molly's Game is not The Crucible, one of the great works in the American canon. It's often a zippy, fun time, however—that is, if you can convince yourself to overlook its self-congratulation and mildly regressive gender politics.
