Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Searching for Bobby Fischer—terrific chess drama movie—WOW! Very well-made and executed story. It would be difficult to execute a well-made story on a game like chess, but this movie completely succeeds. This film serves as a good family movie that broadens horizons about professional activities humans can involve in as well as the importance of knowing oneself and maintaining integrity to that knowing.
