Plot Summary
A young girl from the slums of Uganda rises up to become one of the world’s greatest chess masters
Director
There are three things that I am a complete sucker for in movies. One is the underdog getting the win, second is riveting conflict, and third is an excellent story. This film has all three of those and more. It is a beautifully told, mostly family-friendly, story that will have you laughing, crying, and cheering.

The film focuses on the struggle people have trying to change their status or class in the world. It shows the outside world trying to keep the slum people in their place, but it also shows the self-struggle to just accept what is your lot in life and not try for more versus going for your dreams.

The cast is incredible. They make the story come to life in an authentic and compelling way. I don’t think they will be up for any awards for these roles, but they are good enough to at least be in the conversation.

This movie also has the added value of being based on a true story. That makes it even more enjoyable to watch, especially as the end credits roll. I highly recommend seeing this movie and taking your children (probably 8 and up). It will probably start some very interesting discussions.
