User Reviews: I am very impressed by the acting of the kid

The movie is interesting, but not especially amazing. Above average. I believe it’s quite enjoyable for people who like this style of movie though. It slightly reminds me of Matilda, maybe due to comedy elements and smart girl.

Garafalo is a bit under utilized. I have been a big fan for years and think she’s great. But of course the movie is about the girl, so it’s to be expected that she’s under utilized.

There’s some funny lines in the movie. For example the mentor remarks, in response to a question, ‘Is it bigger than a breadbox?’ And the girl says ‘XBox"? And he says ‘What’s an XBox". And she says ‘What’s a breadbox’. Very funny gender gap commentary

It’s not a good chess movie IMO. If you want more about chess, see something else, IMO. I feel like this movie misrepresents the game a bit and how one would learn about it.
