Movie Night

My 11 year old grandson and I had movie night.  He picked out The Queen of Katwe, the story of of a ten year old girl living in Uganda.  Her father has died and her mother struggles to feed and shelter her children. Phiona is part of a group of children who are taught to play the game of chess as part of a missionary program.  Although she is uneducated, has not had the opportunity to go to school, she grasps the game quickly. Soon she is winning championships. The family’s road to a better life is not without hitches, but it is a joyful story, well worth watching.

A trailer HERE.

We enjoyed it very much. Well, except for my popcorn had gone stale and didn’t pop up very fluffy.
