Goofs

In the big close-up in Jimmy's game at the Nationals, he waits a while, then moves the pawn in front of his Queen, which is correctly placed on a white square. The board has been set up wrongly, though, so the Queen should be on his left. A later shot shows the King and Queen in their correct positions. See more »

Quotes

Richard: The Queen is the most powerful piece on the board, the catch is everyone wants to kill her.

Excellent movie for all ages
27 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a time where critical thinking and being able to think "outside the box" are fundamental, this movie give hope to so many who don't have much exposure to things outside their little world. Not everyone in the USA even knows the wonder of your neighborhood library, or of an art / science / history museum, or has even been to a zoo. So many in our country are struggling just to learn to read. It gives hope to see these young children learn to master the game of chess, learn to know that they too can take a stand for what is right, for what they deserve. It also shows how rewarding it is to help show someone the way to a new way of learning, thinking, doing, being...to give hope.
