"Queen of Katwe" is the colorful true story of a young girl selling corn on the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess, and, as a result of the support she receives from her family and community, is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion. Directed by Mira Nair ("Monsoon Wedding") and starring Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years a Slave").

This humanistic tale, helmed by a masterful filmmaker, offers a potent -- and yes, inspirational -- story of triumph against huge odds.
