Come enjoy this beautiful film about the power of hope, determination, and chess.  This is the true story of Phiona Mutesi, a young Ugandan girl who discovered chess at the age of 10, and how her natural affinity for the game allowed her a chance to see beyond the limits of Katwe, the slum in Uganda’s capital city in which she lived.  With marvelous performances by Lupita Nyong’o, David Oyelowo, and Madina Nalwanga as Phiona, this is a heartwarming and inspiring film.
