Book cinema tickets for Magnus

Norway's Magnus Carlsen is regarded as the "Mozart of Chess" for his skill in blending learned tactics with remarkable creativity and intuition. Memorised moves and calculated probabilities can carry a chess player extremely far, but Magnus' journey eventually proves that there can be other elements of the game, ones that are impossible to measure or calculate. Through an extensive amount of archival footage and home movies, director Benjamin Ree reveals this young man's fascinating, unusual and rapid trajectory to the top of the chess rankings.
