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 of chess with unrivaled originality and instinct. Through access to and use of an extensive amount of 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 the fascinating world of competitive chess as they peek into the mind of a modern genius. This DVD features English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired, surround sound and bonus features 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 along with the official "Magnus" theatrical trailer.
