Critical Thinking

Chess is the great equalizer.


Critical Thinking
Set in Miami, 1998, and based on a true story. Poverty, broken families, and a prejudiced system push underprivileged youth to the fringes of society. But for a magnetic group of teens, there’s a reprieve. A game where it’s not about where you come from, but how you play. That equalizer is chess. Mr. “T” Martinez, a chess militant and passionate coach, leads them to a completely foreign field of battle.

111 minutes.
