A brilliant but troubled New Zealand chess champion finds purpose by teaching underprivileged children about the rules of chess and life.
Based on an inspiring true story out of New Zealand, The Dark Horse provides all the drama, conflict and surprises you would expect from a big budget film with deep coffers. The film tackles complex themes of mental illness and disadvantaged youth which provides compelling cinematic tension and keeps you glued to the screen.
Having won two international audience film awards, this film is a definite crowd pleaser.
“An emotionally potent story of redemption.” – Hollywood Reporter.
