Movie poster for “The Queen's Gambit”.

What happened? I watched a series?! I guess I can handle 7 episodes. And this was really good! Loved all the characters, especially Beth Harmon’s and her adoptive mother’s. The plot was great, too. It was very well acted; I thought all the facial expressions during the matched were fantastic. The film sets looked lovely (the CGI not so much, though), and a lot of piano music meant I enjoyed the soundtrack, too! It was a bit long in the middle, but otherwise this was a very enjoyable watch! I’m kind of interested in chess now.
