With chess firmly back in the zeitgeist thanks to Netflix’s The Queens Gambit, you may be looking for your next watch. One that’s certainly worth a watch is Searching for Boby Fischer which is about a father hiring a chess master to coach his wunderkind son.

The movie has been on Netflix in the past and was last seen in 2015.
