A complex and fascinating portrait of genius wasted.
-James Greenberg, The Hollywood Reporter
In 1958, Bobby Fischer stunned the chess world by becoming the youngest Grand Master in history. Over the next decade and a half, his breathtaking rise to the top echelon of the game riveted the world and inspired an international chess phenomenon. Then, at the apex of his success, Fischer vanished from the public eye. Academy Award®-nominee Liz Garbus reveals the true story behind the troubled genius, from his meteoric rise to fame to the growing madness that finally consumed him.
