“For all the stories in New Zealand that are made into films, I would say it is one of those I call unique. It allows us to see a side of New Zealand that many would rarely see. Cliff Curtis’ performance as chess master Genesis surprises me, in terms of physical shape, mental state and spiritual essence. It goes to show that even a man with a disability can make such an impact on helping social impaired children and adolescents. And James Rolleston who played his nephew shows he can surprise even himself by learning he is worth more than he thought.
I won’t give it a rating of 10/10 or a 100%. I will rate this like one of the film’s quotes: A King for a King.”
