The Queen's Gambit

 

Netflix has really outdone itself lately. The Queen's Gambit is absolutely worth watching. It's stunning in every way, from set and costume through to plot. It's about a childhood chess protégé and her rise to fame, but all of the characters feel incredibly genuine. Different people come and go through her life and are important at different times, but all feel relatable. Very interesting that it was written by two men, as it feels like a story that not only has a female protagonist, but is very much told from a female perspective. It's extremely well done.
