  • 4 stars Excellent movie!!! Well acted. A very uplifting story.
  • 5 stars The Big screen effect as it relates to an African community setting was spectacular. The characters and storyline included humour and complexity that pulled us through 2 hours of enjoyment.
  • 5 stars Wonderful film that I will watch again. Having been in that area of Kampala I know it is true to life. Great story and very inspiring. Love the people of Uganda.
  • 5 stars Awesome movie! Go watch it.
  • 5 stars Uplifting movie. Makes me feel we are very lucky here in NA.
  • 5 stars So moved by this story...touching, real, honest portrayal of the challenges of third world countries. Beautifully and respectfully told. Looking forward to seeing it again but next time I'll bring more kleenex.
  • 5 stars Great great movie! What a beautiful story and the characters are wonderfully portrayed. I loved it from start to finish. Go see it!
  • 4 stars This story really touched my heart; hopefully there are more people like those in this story who help others succeed.
  • 4 stars Such a heartwarming film. Really good!
  • 5 stars Very well done..it's a pity there is no $$$$ in chess. Government sponsorship? Should be something. Their local government needs to get a city planner in place to organize that area. They need to build little cottages for those people at low cost, and an area for markets. What about those 'tiny houses' we use in California. I had hoped Fiona would win big in USSR next time. I haven't played chess in over 30 years, after they changed the notations I stopped, it was like "what's next!" Reading chess books such as "pawn power" and articles written by Larry Evans in the past were my lessons. Tell us more about Ugandan chess.
