Interesting movie that leaves a lot questions unanswered. The script is a bit superficial, and even the good performances cannot make up for that.

The world went crazy for chess back in 1972, and this movie is the story of how that came to be. Starring three great actors that command the screen in every scene: Tobey Maguire, Liev Schrieber, and Peter Saarsgard.
