Queen of Katwe
A young girl overcomes her disadvantaged upbringing in the slums of Uganda to become a Chess master.
The story however (while following a fairly predictable family-friendly line) is totally engrossing. Chess may not be the most engaging spectator sport, but the journey of lead-character Phiona is a thorough one, and an intriguing side-step away from the usual Disney setting.
David Oyelowo is particularly worth looking out for. He (unsurprisingly) gives a fantastic performance.
_Final rating:★★★ – I personally recommend you give it a go._
