Queen of Katwe

True story of chess prodigy from Uganda. "If there is anyone out there capable of remaining unmoved by this true-life triumph-of-the-underdog sports story, I don't think I want to meet that person." - A.O. Scott, NY Times

"Director Mira Nair (Mississipa Masala, Monsoon Wedding) is back with Queen of Katwe, a biographical sports drama based upon the life of Phiona Mutesi, the first Ugandan woman to ever become a titled chess player.

"Mutesi was a born chess prodigy who eventually worked her way up to the World Chess Olympiads, and later became a Woman Candidate Master. Hers is as unlikely and triumphant a life story as you're ever likely to hear, and with Disney and Nair at the helm, it's no surprise to hear that Queen of Katwe is already starting to generate Oscar buzz.

"Starring Madina Nalwanga (as Mutesi), Lupita Nyongo (Oscar winner for 12 Years a Slave), and David Oyelow (Selma), Queen of Katwe is a powerful and inspiring film for all ages." - Alamo Drafthouse
