MAGNUS is a rousing, feel-good film about one the world’s most extraordinary chess players— 26-year-old Magnus Carlsen. This “Mozart of Chess,” who checkmated Bill Gates in nine moves, became a chess grandmaster at the age of 13.
As a young boy, Magnus Carlsen was very different from his peers. Bullied by the other children, he usually sat by himself lost in thought. But when a strong interest in numbers led him to the game of chess at the age of five, he quickly started to climb in the ranks of the chess world.
