I saw this movie last night. It was so great and inspiring, and based on true facts. THE DARK HORSE is based on the true story of Genesis ‘Gen’ Potini (Cliff Curtis), a Maori speed-chess champion seeking redemption and a new purpose in life despite his struggles with bipolar disorder.
It’s raw and real and worth the price of a ticket. Here in Los Angeles it’s playing at the Laemle’s Royal Theater in West Los Angeles. Unfortunately, you won’t have to fight the lines. It’s not as crowded as it should be. There are no special effects just real human interest.
