3 Visitor Reviews for Queen of Katwe

  1. Mark Kiwummulo says:

    A number of African children would have come from slums and streets to become succesful in different careers but they never make it into the limelight because they dont know where to find someone to help them shine. Phiona Mutesi needed such help and she found it. How many will you help this year to make their lives better? We Africans should learn to believe in ourselves before someone else gets believe in us.

  2. Mark Kiwummulo says:

    I cannot watch this movie to where I can get satisfied. Africa has many such stories but they are buried under fear and lack of support. Imagine how many children have been encouraged to pursue their dreams through the life of this girl. Can you give us a forum where we can post our life expeeiences so that we can inspire others? You may find many such movies unrealized.

  3. Roy Coleman says:

    A very good movie of a gifted young girl. Who did not let poverty stand in her way of her dream.We need more movies like this one!!!
