Queen of Katwe

Here’s a mainstream movie set in Africa that’s not about conflict zones, has an entirely black speaking cast, and is centred on the intellectual achievements of a female protagonist – this makes Queen of Katwe an altogether radical rarity, yet it couldn’t be more audience friendly. Mira Nair’s intelligent, colourful take on the true story of Ugandan chess champion Phiona Mutesi has affecting performances from Lupita Nyong’o, David Oyelowo and newcomer Madina Nalwanga. A fresh and inspiring story of talent overcoming poverty, self-doubt and snobbery.
