Keeping their promise to showcase stellar performances and never-seen-before stories, Star Movies Select HD will air the inspirational true story – QUEEN OF KATWE for the first time on Indian Television.
QUEEN OF KATWE is a film directed by Mira Nair and stars an Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o. The film is based on the inspiring story of one of Uganda’s highest rated chess players, Phiona Mutesi.
The film is the story of Ugandan Chess Champion Phiona Mutesi; a grounded individual who comes from a rough, poverty-stricken childhood and yet teaches us that anything is possible if one is willing to learn. Based on a true story, the film is a depiction of Mutesi’s constant battles against the odds and her eventual triumph that puts her at the forefront of her nation.
For a movie that focusses so much on chess, a game looked at as dull and slow-paced at times, QUEEN OF KATWE is an absolute breeze.
QUEEN OF KATWE will premiere on Star Movies Select HD on November 11 at 9 PM.
