If you've been searching for a "stand-up-and-cheer movie" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), a film "not only to enjoy but to cherish" (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times), look no further – you've found Searching for Bobby Fischer. Josh Waitzkin (Max Pomeranc) is a typical seven-year-old who happens to be a chess prodigy. Joe Mantegna stars as Josh's Father, a sportswriter determined to see his son become a champion. Searching for Bobby Fischer is about their heartwarming journey of discovery, as a father and son learn the one thing neither can afford to lose: their love for each other. Laurence Fishburne and Ben Kingsley deliver powerful supporting performances in this uplifting film that's rich with all the promise and wonder of life.
