Summary, etc.:
As a young boy, Magnus Carlsen was very different from his peers. Bullied by the other children, he usually sat by himself, lost in thought. But when a strong interest in numbers led him to the game of chess at the age of 5, he quickly started to climb the ranks of the chess world. At 13, he decided that he would become the World Chess Champion. Magnus is now known as the “Mozart of Chess,” combining the skill and intellect necessary for chess with unrivaled originality and instinct. Through extensive archival footage and home movies, filmmaker Benjamin Ree follows Magnus's meteoric rise to the top in this unique coming-of-age story. The film invites audiences to experience both the fascinating world of competitive chess as well as the mind of a modern genius. This special edition DVD features bonus materials including chess lessons by Magnus himself: The Rules of Chess, Two Special Rules in Chess, Check and Check Mate, How to Play The Opening and The King Hunt, the official "Magnus" theatrical trailer as well as surround sound and English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired.
