For a movie about watching people play Chess, this movie is incredibly dynamic.
This film is about a child who is an absolute prodigy when it comes to playing Chess, but the problem is that he's a little bit of an outcast because of it. He has a lot of trouble simply trying to be normal kid, while at the same time trying to balance out winning Chess championships and not be taken advantage of.
Bobby Fischer is the name of the Grand Master Champion that the main character in the movie (somewhat) models his life after, as he is the ideal Chess player. The child narrates by explaining different parts of Fischer's life in a somewhat analogous manner, demonstrating that Chess can be applicable in almost every situation.
The way I'm explaining it now, it doesn't sound very good, but it is. By the end of the movie, you're cheering at the movement of a pawn.
You'll be cheering at this.
I absolutely recommend you stream this movie, especially in you're in the mood to find a family-oriented movie on Watch Instant. I really do find it a shame that more people don't know about this movie, and hopefully once you've finished streaming it, you'll do what we did and spread the word, as this is one of the best family movies to watch on Netflix streaming.
