Brooklyn Castle is a must-watch though

One of the really good movies that I would definitely recommend is Queen of Katwe.

Do you mean the movie as a whole or for its representation of our game?

How about the Thomas Crown Affair? While the focus of the movie was not about Chess, there was an integral scene in which Faye Dunaway seduces Steve McQueen (or was it the other way around?) over a game of Chess. Metaphorically, the movie resembled Chess in that each was trying to anticipate the other's move throughout the movie.
