Chess in Film by Egantx7

Question 1

The title figure is referred to and shown in historic flashbacks, but does not personally appear on screen. The main character is Josh Waitzkin, a chess prodigy who learns to balance the demands of being a master and an ordinary kid. Joe Mantegna played Josh's father, who in real life wrote the book that the film was based on. Give the title of the film that features Lawrence Fishburne as a Washington Park chess hustler and Ben Kingsley as a chess tutor, a film that ends with Josh begging his obsessed opponent to take the draw, which he refuses, allowing Josh to win with honor. (The title "character" was hiding out in Budapest at the time, having defied UN sanctions from a match against Boris Spassky)
