Filmed in NZ - mainly Gisborne, plus a bit in Auckland. Based on events which occurred in 2000 - the true story of Genesis Potini, a speed-chess champion who has "mental issues" but regains direction by running a chess club for disadvantaged/delinquent kids. An amazing film - in Britain we produce sentimental shite like Billy Elliot to portray similar themes - but in NZ they make real gritty stuff without trying to manipulate your emotions from a calculated filming-by-numbers template. One of the best films I've seen for a long time - maybe up there with One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, so don't expect a fluffy Sunday-night-on-the-sofa-with-a-mug-of-cocoa experience.
