Queen of Katwe is the true story of a young Ugandan girl whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess, and, as a result of the support from her family and community, pursues her dream of becoming an international chess champion. An adaptation of the 2012 acclaimed book “The Queen of Katwe: One Girl’s Triumphant Path to Becoming a Chess Champion,” the story centers on Phiona Mutesi (newcomer Madina Nalwanga), an international chess sensation who hails from the slums of Uganda. When she is nine-years-old, Phiona meets Robert Katende (David Oyelowo), a refugee and missionary who seeks to empower children by teaching them to play chess. With Robert and her community’s support, Phiona becomes a major contender on the chess scene, and dreams of becoming a Grandmaster, the highest level of achievement in chess. Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) plays Harriet, Phiona’s mother.
