Based on the novel of the same name by Walter Tevis, this miniseries is brilliant at challenging and breaking stereotypes.
Director Scott Frank has painted a challenging world where we don’t feel sorry for anyone, we just root for them because of the way they handle and conduct their lives
The result? A prodigy who goes on to become a Chess phenomenon, taking on the greats in the realm. A riveting watch with a wonderful performance by the lead, Anya Taylor-Joy and every other cast member.
A must watch, with a pertinent message that is driven home plenty of times!
