    Good movie about the game of chess
  • Inspiring and Well Acted

    By Omnipotentud
    An uplifting indie film with a winning ensemble cast is strongly and convincing led by director/actor, Mr. Leguizamo. We chose to stream this title to contrast all of the negative news stories we’re bombarded with now, and it worked. A couple of minor drawbacks are the somewhat shaky camera work and our difficulty in following the details of chess moves.
  • Trash

    By E3damian
    Horrible script and even worse actor
  • Great LAtinx movie

    For those looking to see some Latinx individuals prove that they too can compete this is the movie. Has some humor but it is also dramatic. Vote Blue this upcoming election, support your Latinx movies!
  • Great story!

    By svburns
    If you want to feel hopeful this is a great movie. A little bit of violence but so necessary to get the full scope of what the kids were facing. It isn't a blockbuster but it can certainly entertain and warm your heart.

  • Love an inspirational chess movie

    By Kate S L
    Really likes the movie, it’s message, acting and characters. Would’ve like more character development and stories at the end from the real people.
  • STOP with the use of “LatinX”

    By iriarterc
    The community by in large doesn’t recognize/utilize it. Academia, corporate America, public sector and media are taking it on their own to push this narrative. In a bilingual survey of over 3,000 U.S. Hispanic adults released Tuesday, the Pew Research Center found that about a quarter — 23 percent — have heard of Latinx. Within this group of people who know the term, just three percent said they use it to describe themselves. When Pew asked respondents about their preferred pan-ethnic term, 61 percent said they preferred the term Hispanic, followed by 29 percent who preferred Latino. Only 4 percent chose Latinx.
