Beth’s Harmon’s Final Chess Game | The Queen’s Gambit – Full Scene
In a 1950s orphanage, a young girl reveals an astonishing talent for chess and begins an unlikely journey to stardom while grappling with addiction.
Loved this movie. So inspiring too.
I liked this contrast of Americans – telling her to go and christianize Soviets, warning her of any contact with Russians etc – and Russian players who showed respect, humbleness in the eyes of defeat, and actually treated her as an equal player, analyzing her games and working together (just as she was!) to defeat her. Last epi shows the contrast in perceived humanity – which was further emphasized by the last scene, when she is treated as a Pawn by her own government with invitation by POTUS – and as a Queen by Russian park grandpas, who invite her to a simple game of chess.
This movie was based on the real life of Judith Pulgar. She is an absolute gem of a player, and a person.
I really like the fact that this scene well illustrates the fact that if you are really, intensely passionate about the game of chess, you have a high probability of ending up old and poor.
I love how Borgov seems proud of Beth here. Not just because he loose against a great player but also because this time, Beth is at her best. The first time they met, she was a young girl, brilliant but not prepared to confront him and the second time, she was tired, exausted because of the night she spend to drink with Cleo. Here she is sobber, in peace with herself. He's proud because this time the game was loyal for both of them.
Next they're gonna change them pieces to Trans pawn, queen,king
It's sad that this was basically about Bobby Fischer.
Not only they had a good storyline, actors, n music , the outfits are all georgeous
If this was an anime. They’d draw out this game over like 5 episodes. And then it’d turn into a shadow game
Gives me goosebumps every time!
This game is based on Bobby Fischer- Boris Spaasky. Spaasky even applauded after Fischer won too
It's me 👸 gambit based on my life story as an original
He's classy guy.
Hands down this is one of the Best American Tv shows ever…no wonder why it bagged 11 Emmy awards 🙌🏾
My life as jobless genius in U.K.
I love the detail that in the start of the show she is dressed like a pawn and also moves straight like any pawn does at the start of the game whereas in the end she has been dressed like a queen and can decide any direction for her life now
This is one of my top 10 movies in my life.
Beth and Borgov had more chemistry than her and Benny…
Wow I had no idea how incredible this show would be literrally one of the most satisfying programs I've ever seen. I was literally giddy watching the last episode. I can't even say the last time a show made me feel this way. No surprise it won 11 Emmy awards.
It was an extraordinary series, quite unlike anything I had seen before & totally captivating from the storyline, acting, filming & direction/ production and not forgetting the superb musical score.
Is that guy Marcin Dorociński?
Three young artists with exceptional talent, the brightest of futures and charisma off the charts – Anya Taylor-Joy, Jodie Comer and Aurora Aksnes.
I like how Beth can speak Russian and then it’s revealed the Russian also knows englidh
I'm not sure if I will ever get tired of this scene or this series. Hands down, the best thing I ever saw on Netflix.
I stopped playing decades ago because the game was dominated by tweens.
Amazing performance ❤
