The Power of Inspiration: Queen of Katwe

I found many beautiful things to love about this film. Based on a true story, not only does it take its viewer on a journey to Uganda and the realities of many families struggling to survive, but it showcases the strength of the human spirit. Solid determination shines like gold all throughout this story. It’s on vibrant display in Phiona’s concentration on the chessboard, her mother’s constant battle to support her family and even the pastor’s courage to push for opportunities for the village children.
