Queen of Katwe

TV Times - - Film Guide -

An il­lit­er­ate nine-year-old girl from a Kam­pala shan­ty­town lifts her fam­ily from poverty through her tal­ent for chess. The real-life story of Uganda’s Phiona Mutesi (won­der­fully played by Mad­ina Nal­wanga) is quite in­cred­i­ble and gets a rous­ing drama­ti­sa­tion here. Al­though for­mu­laic in parts, this is gen­uinely heart-warm­ing. Dir: Mira Nair 2016, PG, 130min
