The Queen's Gambit (TV 2020)

Rotten Tomatoes
The Queen's Gambit (TV 2020): Orphaned chess prodigy works through childhood traumas, struggles with alcohol and pills, and her own genius. It's a "sports movie" like no other. None of the usual characters act to cliched form. It's her life story that steals our attention. A+

Superb recommendation. Started watching it last night. Each episode was so addictive it was midnight before we knew it! I'm too old to stay up that late, darn it!
