Set during the Cold War, American chess prodigy Bobby Fischer finds himself caught between two superpowers and his own struggles as he challenges the Soviet Empire.
- Tobey Maguire - Bobby Fischer
- Liev Schreiber - Boris Spassky
- Michael Stuhlbarg - Paul Marshall
- Peter Sarsgaard - Father Bill Lombardy
- Edward Zwick
An interesting biopic about a hard to like character. Zwick keeps things ticking along at a decent pace. Not much else to say about it. It’s o.k if there’s nothing else on or you’re a chess fan. Pretty forgettable.
