Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2013

Hello everyone,

Jake Goldberger-directed cool new chess movie 'Life of a King' is releasing January 17, 2014. Goldberger has also written the feature film that stars Cuba Gooding Jr., Dennis Haysbert, and Lisa Gay Hamilton. 

Based on a true story — and a still-active chess club – Life of a King had its premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival recently. 

The story goes: After spending almost two decades in prison, Eugene Brown, played by Gooding, struggles to find a life outside of the walls of his incarceration. He finally gets a janitorial job in an inner-city Washington, D.C. high school and a chance to fix his wrongs. This is where he starts the Big Chair Chess Club and encourages the troubled teens to find purpose through learning the game. Here's the trailer video:
