KNIGHTS OF THE SOUTH BRONX cover image
Loved it. They weren't too sure at the out start and had to be coached into watching. But, once it got started, they were glued to the screen. Definitely worth repeat viewing and telling others about.
Wonderful film. Well paced. Follows a predictable storyline, not dissimilar to sports genre films - but the chess playing Ted Danson character is charismatic and charming. Based on a true story, the kids' dilemmas of how to succeed under the most difficult circumstances bring reality right into your living room. It's a feel-good kind of movie that you can enjoy sharing with the children in your life.
Middle-aged and recently unemployed, Richard Mason (Ted Danson) decides to return to his first love: teaching. He finds a job as an inner-city schoolteacher teaching fourth grade. Richard discovers a way to reach out to his skeptical students through the game of chess. Against all odds, he inspires his students to become champions, not only at chess, but in life! Ted Danson gives a compelling performance in this heroic, heartwarming story based on true events co-starring Keke Palmer and Malcolm David Kelley. Knights of the South Bronx proves that no matter who you are or where you come from, if you play like a winner, you can be a king!
