| An excellent film that will touch your heart and make you smile
Endgame was among the nicest films I have seen this year. Based on the true story of a young rolly polly boy who lives in USA with his Mexican mother, elder brother (a star player of his school team) and his grand mother who has been teaching him chess.

The film starts to move forward within minutes, and saying anything else would be a spoiler (so yes - a lot happens - every few minutes!).

Some moments of the film tug at your heart (I could sense moments where I may have felt - and I am sure many other viewers too may have felt a feeling of deja vu - just like this child, albeit a few decades ago). Others make you smile, and some make you laugh.

If there is one thing this movie is, it is genuine. No pretenses.

It is only at the end that one realizes that this film is based on a true story of a small town in Texas.

The acting by everyone is excellent - especially the kids who act exactly like kids would have behaved. The music is lovely - Mexican style guitar mixed with simple songs.

Highly recommended viewing. Even if (perhaps especially if) you do not have any interest in the game of chess. For the film is more about childhood, dreams and people that about the game. And That, is a universal theme.
