Queen of Katwe (2016)

  • qk

USA | 124 min | PG | DCP | Dir. Mira Nair

"Queen of Katwe" is the colorful true story of a young girl selling corn on the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess, and, as a result of the support she receives from her family and community, is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion.

"The colors and rhythms of life in the slums of Uganda are what set Queen of Katwe apart from other underdog chess movies." - Sandy Cohen (Associated Press)
