A touch of Bill Forsyth
19 September 2001 | by jules-108See all my reviews

There's just a touch of Bill Forsyth's gentle Scottish comedies here - only this film is set in a Welsh mining town where Davey (Duane Phillips) leads his school in chess. He is coached by his history teacher (Richard Davies) who sees in him a chance to realise his old ambition of bringing a chess trophy home to Trehafod from the British Chess Championship in Bournemouth.
