The Dark Horse

recommended - Very moving and uplifting, though a difficult watch in places

(Edit) 23/02/2018

I got this one out based on the trailer which focuses on some kids from a very deprived area finding self-respect through learning and competing in chess - and billed it to my family as a feel-good movie.

Well, I got a bit more than I bargained for, with some very violent scenes, and some vicious attitudes, as you delve into the depths of human dysfunction in an area dominated by drugs and gangs .

However, it was an extremely powerful film, with a positive ending and some very moving performances.

Highly recommend it.
