You can’t miss with this wonderful, inspiring story based on true events. Phiona is a poor girl from Uganda who becomes a master Chess player. At times funny, harrowing, and insightful, this film has a lot of fantastic acting (particularly from Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo). While it does deal with some serious issues that real people go through, you’ll leave smiling and uplifted.
