Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit

Anya Taylor-Joy, Marielle Heller, Moses Ingram, and Scott Frank in Conversation with Jodie Foster

Nov 1, 2020

Scott Frank and powerhouse female cast of their new Netflix limited series The Queen’s Gambit join Jodie Foster for an in-depth conversation about the making of the show. Based on the Walter Trevis novel about a Cold War-era chess prodigy, it’s a coming-of-age story like no other—a complex portrait that follows a young girl from a Kentucky orphanage into the upper echelons of competitive chess as she discovers her preternatural talent for the game—along with the demons that haunt her pursuit of a new life. Don’t miss this candid conversation about capturing the beauty and suspense of chess on film, telling an unconventional story of addiction, and creating a complex female character at work in a male-dominated game.
