Check-mate The Halls this Christmas with Award-Winning Film on MAGNUS – the Newly-Crowned Three Times World Chess Champion
Available on digital, VoD, Blu-ray & DVD 12th December
As a young boy Magnus Carlsen was very different from his peers. He usually sat by himself, lost in thought, and his parents, Henrik and Sigrun, were concerned about his relative development. When a strong interest in numbers made them realize that he could become a good chess player, they introduced him to the game at the tender age of 5. He soon started climbing the ranks of the chess world.
At 13 he became the youngest grandmaster in the world, and began to wonder just how far he could go. Magnus is the incredible story of a boy, who went from being bullied by his classmates to become the World Chess Champion. For a decade the filmmakers have captured the decisive moments of Magnus Carlsen’s life, one of the world’s most intelligent people, and achieved over 500 hours of footage.
In 2004, when Magnus was 13 years old he made a decision: He would become the World Chess Champion. The coming of age story unfolds as we follow the prodigy battling his way through the ranks of chess, with personal sacrifices, special friendships and a caring family.
