Queen to Play (Rating: B)

Just watched "Queen to play".  The movie is a metaphor about chess representing both social mobility and seduction.   Check out the trailer here:   http://www.zeitgeistfilms.com/queentoplay/

One pleasant surprise is how accurate the chess games are in the movie.  Some of the chess moves are brilliant but only on screen for a couple of seconds.  You have to have a sharp chess eye to follow the chess games.

 However, some of the actors move the chess pieces like they are afraid of them.  Real chess players move with confidence.

Kevin Kline is an English actor, but in this movie he speaks nothing but French.
