Queen of Katwe

Lovely relaxing afternoon watching Queen of Katwe on Netflix (but I see it is also on Sky). It stars the gorgeous Lupita Nyong'o and equally gorgeous David Oyelowo and it is about a little girl from the slums of Kampala who becomes a world chess champion (based on truth). I loved it (but had to keep the tissue box close at times). A very uplifting film and I especially like it when you see the actual people with the actors at the end (like they did in the closing credits of Lion).

Sounds like a good suggestion! Love movies based on real stories. I have added to my 'to watch' list smile
