Queen of Katwe

Queen of Katwe

Disney and ESPN join forces for this by-the-numbers "root for the underdog" sporting drama that nonetheless manages to be deeply humanistic and emotionally affecting. Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding, Mississippi Masala) directs this true-life tale of an impoverished Ugandan preteen (charismatic newcomer Madina Nalwanga) who sees a neighborhood chess class as her ticket out of the ghetto. Chess isn't the most exciting thing to watch on screen, but Nair wisely concentrates on her strong characters and doesn't shy away from the harsher realities of life in modern-day Africa. FULL REVIEW: Unfamiliar setting and offbeat subject make this sporting drama better than much of its competition by Devin D. O’Leary (9/29/2016). 124 minutes PG.
