2013 Certificate: pg


After serving 18 years for bank robbery, Eugene Brown (Cuba Gooding Jr) blags his way into a caretaker's job at a tough high school in Washington, DC. To atone for his previous history, Eugene tries to steer the students away from a life of crime by teaching them the art of chess. Dennis Haysbert co-stars as Eugene's mentor in a gently persuasive drama with some interesting metaphorical moves. Based on a true story.
