To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Mira Nair’s work and since it was available on Disney+, I thought I might as well check it out. I have to admit that I didn’t know what it was about and it was a nice surprise to see that it was dealing with chess which is a fascinating game in my opinion.

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

“To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Mira Nair’s work and since it was available on Disney+, I thought I might as well check it out. I have to admit that I didn’t know what it was about and it was a nice surprise to see that it was dealing with chess which is a fascinating game in my opinion. Of course, the story was after all rather generic and predictable but I still think it was uplifting and inspiring. On top of that, even though it might be expected from such a Disney production, they didn’t sugar-coat the damned thing at all and the life in this shanty town in Uganda seemed terribly bleak and grim as it should be. It was also refreshing that the main character was not your typical white saviour as it is unfortunately usua” read more
