Queen of Katwe [SQ Inflight Entertainment]


A heartwarming, true-life story that is so typical of the Disney brand but very effectively brought to the big screen by Mira Nair. Setting it all in Africa lent the film a sense of authenticity and the script by William Wheeler neatly, albeit formulaic, brought this unlikely underdog story to life.

Strong performances by David Oyelowo and Lupita Nyong'o, but definite shout-out goes to newcomer Madina Nalwanga who truly embodied her character and made you root for her success in both the game and in life.
