Win It All While Losing Your Mind! Behind The Scenes of Pawn Sacrifice!


At the height of the Cold War, everything between the United States and the U.S.S.R. was a symbol of the supremacy of one over the other: literature, ice hocky, even (maybe especially) chess.

Pawn Sacrifice is the story of American chess master Bobby Fisher’s epic match versus the Russian World champion, Boris Spassky. It’s the story of a man who wanted to win it all even as he was losing his mind.

Follow the jump for a new featurette on Pawn Sacrifice featuring interviews with stars Tobey Macguire and Liev Schreiber and more.
