Starring David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong’o, Madina Nalwanga

Continuing Disney’s trend of cultural sports films following McFarland, USA (2015) and Million Dollar Arm (2014), Queen of Katwe tells the true story of Phiona Mutesi, an international chess prodigy raised in Ugandan slums. This is a wonderful movie that benefits from a strong sense of authenticity and effortless performances from everyone.
