“When you have that accessibilty to the story, when you have that empathy for a people and a place, hopefully it results in people being moved to do something in their own communities, or maybe even in Katwe,” she told TimesLive.

Lupita added, “That is the hope. But for a film on its own to make the difference we so seek in the world, is a lofty demand.”

    Not so sweet are you? By your judgmental post, you clearly lack knowledge and understanding on social issues.
    Lupita looks lovely as always.
