    This was an inspiring and feel good movie with some comedic elements. The acting by all the principal characters was excellent. The fact that it was based on actual events made it that much easier to root for the underdog. My only complaint is that the accents were a little difficult to understand at times but that isn't the fault of the movie as it was set in Africa. Still an excellent choice for anyone especially families looking for some family friendly entertainment.

    An uplifting story

    The movie preview intrigued me about the story of a young girl potential chess master coming from a poor African country who overcame the odds of being poor but having intellectual potential and an ability to excel - the ultimate example of nature versus nurture. It's a great telling, but you have to really pay attention since it can be difficult to understand because of the dialect and speech patterns - it doesn't detract from the story-telling or the positives about how she succeeds, but just something you should be aware of.

    Good movie based on true story, but a little long

    Overall I thought this was a decent to good movie with some inspirational moments and some good talking points for my kids (age 6 and 8). I thought it ran a little long and it could have been edited down to trim the run-time down 15-20 minutes. My kids are young and these types of movies tend to make them "tune-out" but they were able to stick it through and finish the movie.

    This was a great movie and the fact that it was based on an actual person made it all the more noteworthy. I watched it with my 10 year old and it was a great way to show that anyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve their dreams if they want it badly enough and are wiling to work hard and make sacrifices.

    Very moving story about a young girl who becomes a chess champion without having been to school in her life. It's a triumph of the human spirit over adversity.
