Queen of Katwe

October 14, 2016 @ 7:30 pm

Queen of Katwe

PG    | 2 Hours 10 Minutes | Drama – Sport

Director: Mira Nair

Writer: William Wheeler (screenplay), Tim Crothers (based on the ESPN Magazine article and book by)

Starring: Madina Nalwanga, David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong’o

Living in the slum of Katwe in Kampala, Uganda, is a constant struggle for 10-year-old Phiona (Madina Nalwanga) and her family. Her world changes one day when she meets Robert Katende (David Oyelowo), a missionary who teaches children how to play chess. Phiona becomes fascinated with the game and soon becomes a top player under Katende’s guidance. Her success in local competitions and tournaments opens the door to a bright future and a golden chance to escape from a life of poverty.

Critics Consensus: Queen of Katwe is a feel-good movie of uncommon smarts and passion, and outstanding performances by Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo help to elevate the film past its clichés.

87% of the people who saw it, enjoyed it.
