Description

Queen of Katwe is based on the vibrant true story of a young girl from the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess, and, as a result of the support she receives from her family and community, is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion. Directed by Mira Nair from a screenplay by William Wheeler, Queen of Katwe is produced by Lydia Dean Pilcher, p.g.a. and John Carls, p.g.a. with Will Weiske and Troy Buder serving as executive producers. The film stars Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo, Oscar winner and Tony Award nominee Lupita Nyongo and newcomer Madina Nalwanga.

Reviews

"When the feel good finish rolls round, you feel it's been fully earned." – Sydney Morning Herald

"[Queen of Katwe is] a film that, like the best Disney fare, connects on some deep and profound level with that part of us that still seeks to improve ourselves – and, who knows, perhaps even the world." – MovieMail

"Directed by the great Mira Nair, the film hits you like a shot in the heart. Nyong'o and Oyelowo are both extraordinary, giving newcomer Nalwanga a chance to shine as Phiona grows into her own woman." – Rolling Stone
