Based on the novel by Walter Tevis, The Queen’s Gambit is a new Netflix mini-series about a female chess prodigy named Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy).
Also starring Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Bill Camp, Moses Ingram and Harry Melling, the story starts with Beth as an eight year-old orphan who’s quiet, sullen, and seemingly unremarkable. That is, until she plays her first game of chess.
I’m mostly interested in Taylor-Joy’s performance. I’m also curious about Beth’s journey from an ‘unremarkable child’ to a chess superstar. Especially as I wonder what her life might have been like had she not discovered the game.
Chloe Pirrie, Annabeth Kelly, Marielle Heller, Janina Elkin, and Jacob Fortune-Lloyd also star.
The Queen’s Gambit Release Dates: October 23rd, 2020 (US & UK)…
