One day in the park with his mother (Joan Allen), Josh displays more than talent – he has a gift. Sensing his son is a future champion, Fred places Josh under the tutelage of a strict chess teacher (Oscar ® winner Ben Kingsley). But when Josh suddenly starts to lose, his parents must confront their own motivations, and recognize what Josh prices more than winning: his family’s love. Costarring Laura Linney and William H. Macy, Searching for Bobby Fischer is a movie “not only to enjoy but to cherish” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times).
