Plot Summary

Plot: Chess prodigy Bobby Fischer’s meteoric rise is punctuated by unpredictable behavior and escalating demands that raise hackles in the conservative chess establishment. As he travels the globe, Fischer crushes the world’s top players in the relentless pursuit of his ultimate quarry: indomitable Soviet chess grandmaster Boris Spassky. In 1972, the volatile New Yorker earns the right to face the Russian veteran in the hotly anticipated "Match of the Century," a 21-game competition in Reykjavík, Iceland, that could end 24 years of Soviet domination of the World Chess Championship. But Fischer’s paranoia and growing obsession with conspiracy theories disrupt the match and his erratic behavior unnerves the normally unflappable Spassky. With the competition increasingly mirroring the tense geopolitics of the Cold War era, even his closest advisors are unsure if Fischer’s actions are the calculated antics of an antisocial eccentric or signs that he is truly unstable.
Rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for brief strong language, some sexual content and historical smoking.
