For every cliché the film indulges, another is skirted, and another subverted. By the end, every ounce of feelgood is deserved.

Even with a clearly signposted ending, it still manages to offer surprises. Nair delights in Uganda, painting a country of many social contrasts and cultures; she embraces possibility, not poverty.

Oyelowo and Nyong'o's performances temper the film with heart-wrenching emotion. And Mira Nair's touching portrait of Katwe's inspiring young queen with a dream is one to remember.

Queen of Katwe is hardly revolutionary but it defies one defining convention of the familiar Disney underdog/culture clash drama: it presents no white savior or mentor to be inspired by the third world / underprivileged characters as he gives them hope.

The story is true, and the message it delivers-with care and help, the disenfranchised can become role models and inspire others-is unabashedly sentimental, but in a good way.

Overall, the film is not without its flaws. However, in the end, you aren't just rooting for Phiona, but also for all of those who have found themselves in similar situations.

Directed by the great Mira Nair, the film hits you like a shot in the heart. Nyong'o and Oyelowo are both extraordinary, giving newcomer Nalwanga a chance to shine as Phiona grows into her own woman.
