MAGNUS — documentary film (2016)

magnus.jpgToday I’m recommending MAGNUS, a 2016 documentary film available on Netflix. Magnus Carlsen is the youngest chess grandmaster ever – age 13. He becomes World Champion in 2013 at the age of 23 – a title he still holds at age 27. He is known in the chess world as the Mozart of Chess.

In a world where most chess experts memorize strategies using computers, this young Norwegian plays by intuition and beats every opponent, including 10 chess experts at Harvard simultaneously  — while blindfolded!

This is not a dry film, it will have you on the edge of your seat!

You’ll love his sweet, supportive family and his own quiet, almost shy, personality.   This 1 hour and 18 minute film is one the whole family will enjoy! You don’t have to love or even understand chess much to enjoy this film.

MAGNUS is perfect for a night at home with some popcorn. You’ll be inspired!

Family Film, 1 hour 18 minutes, Released in 2016
