*All I knew is that it was about chess, who was in it, and that it was made by Disney.
*My main reasons to check this out were my wife and because of Lupita Nyong'o.
*Mira Nair also directed New York, I Love You which I enjoyed.

Pros:

*The acting is pretty great from everyone to be honest.

*It takes place in Uganda, but there were similarities I no” read more

"The acting was fine by the entire cast but unfortunately I found nothing to grab me in this film, had plenty of cliches but they didn't even build up to anything that really held my interest, which was a shame. Spent more time on the situation that the girl and her family were living through and not on chess but I simply did not find their characters, nor that of her chess teacher to be at all engaging.
