This biopic of troubled American chess prodigy Bobby Fischer captures his childhood, revealing his early genius, but also the origins of a state of paranoia that would trouble him throughout his life. By his early twenties, with the Cold War raging in the background, he was already thinking about becoming world champion. With his remarkable talent making him a national celebrity, the White House monitored his progress, desperate for an opportunity to challenge the Soviet dominance of the game. When he was placed against grandmaster Boris Spassky, the “match of the century” captured the attention of the world and took on a symbolic importance far beyond the chess board, although Fischer himself continued to deal with complex mental health issues.
