Carol-Anne Freeling is supposed to have an IQ in the 150s (in this movie she attends a school for "gifted children with emotional problems").



Which is why I think it was so funny that she was playing with a "Speak n' Spell" at the age of 12 (those are for kids just learning to read).

Josh Waitzkin, chess prodigy.




This movie sparked my interest in chess. I have learning disabilities and am very bad at chess, but I do respect the game and people who can play well!

One of my favourite movies. I wish I could play a half decent game, let alone be this great!
