Biopic of bipolar speed chess champion Genesis 'Gen' Potini (Curtis), who formed a chess club for at-risk youth. Curtis gives the performance of his career, gaining four stone to play the troubled and generous Potini, and the film's human interest extends far beyond the triumphs and problems of its troubled and generous central character.
