Queen of Katwe

True emotional uplift is hard to accomplish in the movies, especially in “based on a true story” variations that trend towards easy emotional manipulation and sugary sentimentality. Leave it to a more idiosyncratic director like Mira Nair to take the “child prodigy-made-good-through-sports” story under Disney’s guiding hand and make it feel vibrant, alive, and fresh.   Queen of Katwe ... read more

Notes:
*I knew just about nothing before watching this.
*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.
*I haven't seen anything from William Wheeler, but I have heard of at least one other... read more

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. So despite the good attempt I have to judge Queen of Katwe as a mediocre film that will have "
