So can be described in one word this movie. Katwa is a small town in Uganda. It was here that the main character. About the fate of which tells the film. The film is not about chess, and about people. This drama, biography, and a little tale. This feature film about how it is difficult sometimes to move to its goal. Life puts in front of character do the unthinkable complexity. Born in a small village in a poor family, without father. She forced to survive not even thinking about the future. To then while she will not meet your teacher.

The film raises questions such as "how to plan for the future, if you do not." Really interesting question, which the main character asks his teacher. The main character here, a young girl Harriet the opening in a talent for chess. Trying to survive this moment in the harsh realities of life in Africa. The circumstances around Harriet are not the best way. On the course of the film, she will middle and will visit world's more affluent Africans. From that moment Harriet will have to make some very hard choices, because once you see how can you live it will not want to live as before.

Other characters in this film are Fiona's mother Harriet, very difficult to my opinion role. With which she did, her very well managed to convey the emotions of his character. When she had to cross through itself, but to help his daughter, or the moment when my daughter left her. Sister knight, a minor character, characteristically depicting what we can't all be Champions. Brother it was he literally brought the main character to her life's journey. Bright and energetic character. Teacher Robert Katende. Initially just settled on jobs in the UN mission, he found my way. Interesting character fully give themselves to the cause.

The casting is very good in the end of the film shows real people and actors around. The resemblance is certainly there. Characters each character developed, each with its features are peculiar only to him. The atmosphere in the film is completely immersed in the life of ordinary Africans, and makes empathize with the heroes.

The film leaves a good impression. Raised in the movie themes will be close to many. Difficult but motivating movie. For people finding their way and just lovers of good cinema.

Very beautiful, colorful film! Saw the beauty in the disaster in the severity of everyday life in Africa — but they know how to live, I would be able we also to survive?! With tears eyes but continue to dance barefoot on life.

The teacher's role-mentor in this film sing correctly. Our teachers put in their job is all up to the last pot on his head to show us the right way, but which do so did not go, maybe for fear of change... at that they and I encourage young people to go, to pester, to find their place in society, to be useful!

Film we tell about the fate of a young and talented girl with sufficient courage to accept the challenge and learn chess, spend it is a matter of time until the family earns mouth I can, sometimes not in the most respectable way... But under the guidance of a great mentor — can move mountains, you can lose to order to become stronger! Here we then remind the importance of humility and patience.

By the way, the casting is carried out perfectly, the new faces certainly have the talent to play the truth, maybe even due to the familiar circumstances experienced the fate of their characters. Lupita Nyong'o as always the height is worthy to be in the number of winners of the Oscar, but more her awards at the good!

I recommend viewing the film along with those You high school will create a warm setting, and feelings will unite a family!

In front of our biographical drama, filmed by disney. The Director of film Mira Nair whose some movies I like a some does not. On this movie I stumbled upon by accident, but learning about what's the story, I decided to watch. Waited well me story, full of despair and pain, hope and strength of spirit, good people and pursuit something beautiful.

Movies based on real events that always have their value, and I personally love to watch such films. What can be better than the truth? Something that was really. Always believed and think these stories are the most interesting. They of life, so it is always especially interesting.

Meet the heroine of this story — a young, black girl living in Uganda. Fiona grew up in poverty and knows no other life. It from childhood helps to run his widowed mother and a family to feed. One hard work and joy in the life of Fiona small. One day, by chance it comes in the club, players, where children play. Learning to play chess, the girl opened for an amazing new world of chess. From now and all this became life and Fiona was in this case is very clever and a real genius. The coach made it to become the world champion at chess...

The film is good and a touching, heartfelt and looks very experiential. We see what awful conditions live the main characters, and with each new day — await life and for existence itself. Young heroine Fiona is a very inspiring character. Her luck, fate brought her with a coach who completely changed her life and has always supported.

In fact, the world is a chess game is extremely interesting and curious. Personally, I love chess, so such stories always I particularly interesting. Fiona's story is full of UPS and downs. She was faithful to his dream, and of such poverty and dirt began to break through to something better. A story about it looked dramatic and touching, some scenes took alive. The movie turned out strong, and processing disney made the story charming and quality — for family viewing.

The actors are all played fine, and before I unknown Madina Nalwanga well remembered after his role players. In as her mother was pleased to see Lupita Nyong'o. It is a wonderful and talented actress.

"Queen of the Katwa" — American, sports, biographical drama 2016. This chess film from Disney turned clean and encouraging, showing that all it all depends on us. Wonderful movie, and I tell him  Yes. Thanks for the attention, good mood and great movies!
