"Lass is More" Pays Respect to the "Queen of Katwe"

Listen, if there’s one thing this podcast doesn’t do, it’s sugarcoat things.  If we have a problem with a movie, we say so.  If we have a problem with the world we say so.  Good, bad, or ugly, “Lass is More” is committed calling it like it is.

More than that though, we try to put movies into context, to show how they function alongside a larger picture of the world.  Sometimes, that is a depressing endeavor but, then again, sometimes the world is a depressing place.
Enter “Queen of Katwe,” a classic underdog sports movie about a young woman playing chess in Uganda.  A touching movie, “Queen of Katwe” is the perfect sort of balm for the events of last Friday.
