Friday, August 2 at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. – Brooklyn Castle (2012) Documentary Feature; Rated PG; 102 minutes.
This documentary tells the stories of five members of the chess team at a below-the-poverty-line inner city junior high school that has won more national championships than any other in the country. The film follows the challenges these kids face in their personal lives as well as on the chessboard, and is as much about the sting of their losses as it is about the anticipation of their victories.
"Enlightening, inspiring and expertly crafted." -- Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
